Iloura secures VFX work for Ghost Rider sequel

Iloura will work on visual effects shots for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, employing up to 50 additional people to work on the project between February and August.

The original Ghost Rider film was shot in Melbourne, but Columbia Pictures and Hyde Park Entertainment decided to shoot the followup in Romania.“Film Victoria spoke to the producers and Sony about filming Ghost Rider 2 in Victoria, and of course we’re disappointed that the production chose another location. The high Australian dollar and current Federal incentives do not make Australia competitive. Attracting international projects is difficult, however, the Federal Government appreciates the urgency of this situation and we’re all hoping that they’ll move to keep Australia a competitive production destination,” CEO Sandra Sdraulig told Encore in August 2010.

The Victorian Government said this was “the state’s biggest ever visual effects package”, and it was attracted to the state by the Production Investment Attraction Fund (PIAF).

“This kind of production needs the hi-tech visual effects facilities and award-winning talent we have on offer in Victoria,” Sdraulig said in a statement.
