The special effects geniuses behind the new biblical epic Noah needed to control a huge overhead artificial rain and lighting rig that could deliver 5,000 gallons per minute of water and could turn night into day. How did they control all that? Why, with an iPad, of course!
And on the eighth day, we got apps. Director Darren Aronofsky’s new film Noah is, of course, about the Biblical flood so massive it required one man to build an ark. Bringing such an apocalyptic deluge to the big screen was no easy task, and it required the special effects team behind the movie to, well, make it rain.
The video above details how the crew used the iPad app to control their giant custom storm machine.
Noah is currently appearing at a theater – and most likely a torrent – near you.
