Its plot centers on an earthquake caused by the San Andreas Fault devastating Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area.

LosFX’s role on the film was to take the original plates from a rural airport in order to clean the existing runway lines, as well as paint, create and place 3D assets to the runway, in order to recreate with detail, the San Francisco International airport’s runway. The finished matte paint was then projected onto geometry and composited to match the camera movements of the various shots. Final effort included render and delivering of the final to the film’s compositing artists.
