The movie tells a funny black story of escaping and chasing happened among automotive electrician Song Laoer, who was the suspect of a cruel murder occurred in a remote western village, and Wang Youquan, a sorehead gangster and Dong Xiaofeng, a head waitress in nightclub.
The film named Cock and Bull is the fruit of the fourth cooperation between director Cao Baoping and Timeaxis. The film, as always, continues the realistic style of director Cao Baoping, and Timeaxis is mainly responsible for the production of visual effect shots, such as shootout, motorcycle chase and mass action scenes. When producing the motorcycle chase scene, the Timeaxis Visual Effect Team rebuilt every motorcycle and car in the three-dimensional software, and used the fluid to calculate the fume generated by each car. The steps of fluid production may guarantee that the fume produced conforms to the aerodynamics and looks real.
As for the adventure scene that the hero drives a truck and falls off cliffs, based on various unexpected conditions and in addition to the real-shot scheme, the visual effect directors Zhu Jiming and Chen Yanfei of Timeaxis have scanned and sampled the vehicle to be filmed in advance, so as to obtain the vehicle material and illumination information and prepare high-precision CG model for post production.
