A funny (albeit depressing) reminder from Kirsten Dunst and filmmaker Matthew Frost to not let social media replace our interactions in real life.
Chris Godfrey was the VFX supervisor on The Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann. This video shows shots from the film, before and after VFX had been added – simply amazing. Set to Lana Del Rey’s Young and Beautiful.
Baz has graciously agreed to let us release this ‘before and afters’ reel to show our peer group the VFX work completed on his film ‘The Great Gatsby’. While this specific reel was the work of Animal Logic (as my primary vendor), in total I worked with 7 vendors including Animal Logic, Rising Sun and Iloura in Australia, ILM in San Francisco and also Prime Focus and Method Vancouver. We also ran an amazing internal SWAT team that completed over 400 shots. Congratulations to all who did such fabulous work on almost 1500 shots and especially to Andy Brown from Animal Logic who put this sequence together.
Many thanks to Baz, CM, Catherine Knapman, Chris DeFaria and Mark Brown – and of course Prue Fletcher and Joyce Cox.

Check out renderings here.
