Oil plant explosion vfx

A safety video was filmed by Myriad Global Media as a 'what if' drama. For the finale they asked me to make a huge explosion which devastates the unlucky Omani oil plant. Along with Jon Ossitt we made  key parts of the buildings and installations in 3d so we could blow them apart. Animated 3d debris flew all around. I also drew up the blackened overlays for 'after' the destruction. Using Nuke I composited over ten footage explosions, smoke and fires along with wipes for  the mattes, heatwave distortions, animated masks, shake and grading / lighting effects. BOOM !
