This was MPC LA's first project working with director Noam Murro, and he totally trusted the technical approach for the visual effects requirements of the shoot. The VFX needed to be integrated in a location full of fire. Jittering light came from everywhere, smoke and debris filled the air . . . and of course the live-action fire had to be matched with a 3D generated stand-in that was capable of freezing! The key point was to obtain as much as possible in-camera and without motion-control, to see what really does happen when a house is engulfed by fire.
