The movie 'PROJECT SILENCE' revealed an exciting behind-the-scenes look through numbers.

◆ Fog scenes 90%, unique mood

'PROJECT SILENCE' maintains tension throughout the running time by implementing a dense fog effect in 90% of the scenes of the work against the backdrop of the Airport Bridge, where a fog advisory has been issued. Director of photography Hong Gyeong-pyo installed huge lights throughout the ceiling of the set to provide consistent lighting in line with the characteristics of the film, which tells a story that takes place over one night in one space, and changed colors and intensity of light according to the passage of time in the film. Realism was enhanced through fine control. The unique mood of 'PROJECT SILENCE' was created by carefully controlling the concentration of smog in each scene.

◆ Korea’s largest set of 1,300 pyeong, reminiscent of an actual construction site

The production team had to put in a lot of effort to recreate the scene of a serial collision accident that occurred on the Airport Bridge. In particular, the initial scene where a 100-vehicle collision occurs was created as a set on a 200m road at the Gwangyang container dock, and real vehicles were collided in succession to maximize realism. Since then, most of the filming has been done on a 1,300 pyeong set, the largest in Korea, and it is said that asphalt was laid on the floor and heavy equipment was mobilized to resemble an actual bridge construction site. The production team announced that filming was conducted sequentially on a live-action level set divided into sections of 80m in length and 30m in width for each disaster situation.

◆ 100-vehicle collision accident on Gonghang Bridge involving more than 300 vehicles

Following the production of a set comparable to the actual Airport Bridge, more than 300 vehicles were mobilized for the 100-vehicle collision accident scene. Based on numerous data such as various news, articles, and traffic accident investigation reports, the production team thoroughly analyzed the type and size of the accident vehicle, driving speed, distance between vehicles, lanes, floor material, and weather factors such as wind and fog. Based on the results, more than 300 vehicles were filmed with varying degrees of damage to further enhance detail. Thanks to the production team's effort and passion, the actors were able to immerse themselves in the scene with a vivid sense of fear as if they were actually at the scene of the accident.

◆ 11 military lab dogs created after months of training + VFX

In addition to the spectacular disasters such as helicopter crashes, tanker explosions, and bridge collapses, the 11 military lab dogs 'Echo', which terrified the survivors, also took up an axis of the overall VFX. Dexter Studio, in charge of VFX, designed the appearance and framework of 'Echo' by studying all kinds of videos related to dog movements, and hired a real dog to film while observing each movement. In addition, the martial arts team, who trained the dog's movements over several months and mastered quadrupedal walking, wore blue suits and coordinated with the actors and cameras to embody the fast and threatening movements of 'Echo'. Eleven experimental dogs, each given their own character, appeared, including the leader 'Eco 9', the muscular leader 'Eco 8', the agile racing dog 'Eco 23', and the watchman 'Eco 30', completing the organized team in the movie.

'PROJECT SILENCE', starring Lee Sun-kyun, Joo Ji-hoon, and Kim Hee-won, tells the story of a series of collisions in a thick fog and the story of people who struggle to survive against out-of-control military lab dogs unleashed on the airport bridge, which is on the verge of collapse. . It can be seen in theaters nationwide on the 12th.
