Realistic Entirely CGI Animation Of A Giant Red-Robed Grim Reaper Holding Onto The Golden Gate Bridge

August 2, 2018


This is a video rendering of a red-robed Grim Reaper holding onto the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and watching cars pass, trying to decide whose time is up. The short clip was created by Canadian digital artist Justin LeDuc, and is entirely CGI. From the bridge to the water to the cars to the view from the helicopter to the rain, it's all computer rendering -- no part of it is real (links to all the assets he used HERE). Except Justin did such a good job apparently some people actually thought it was a real video. Wait -- of a giant animatronic Grim Reaper? Nobody thought that was actually the Grim Reaper, right? My God some people are so stupid. The Grim Reaper wears black.

Keep going for the video.

    An organization would need to do broad research to know the traditions and appropriate behavior for the way of life so not to unexpectedly annoy them.

    Very little of what we see on TV or the internet now is 100% real and hasn't been enhanced in some way. Even people. Imagine if all the cosmetic procedures the average human gets were non-existent from braces to contacts to hair removal... lol not to mention the filters everyone uses on their camera to take just random selfies

    Don't fear the reaper. We need more cowbell!

    I think GW must live in a different reality if this is "realistic."

  • Matthew Pringle

    I love how the cars go from 140km/h, instantly to about 20km/h at the drop of a hat. Realistic for sure!

    Good catch. Just noticed that myself. When they come to the central support, they immediately slow down.

  • TheQiwiMan

    That’s not “Death”, it’s obviously just a Nazgul from LotR. (You can tell by his gloves)

  • Elak Swindell

    Yep, totally agree. That is definitely a Nazgul.

  • MustacheHam

    Well done and rather spoopy.

    Accurate or not this is awesome

    Wind should be blowing robes, hands look funky, Reaper is traditionally garbed in black, etc.

  • That's your problem? The pretend grim reaper is traditionally garbed in black?

    The only reason this makes any remote sense is that everyday like 100 people jump of it.

  • GeneralDisorder

    It's averaging about 20 deaths per year. But yeah, it's still the most popular suicide bridge. I can see why. If I was San Francisco for any reason for any length of time beyond just visiting I'd kill myself too.

  • Meh

    20 a year? That doesn't sound right.
