Whoa of the Day: The Second

The Great Gatsby VFX

My name is Chris Godfrey and I was the VFX supervisor on the film.

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.

I have to shamefully admit that I still yet to watch the movie itself, however I’m reading my way through the novel itself so I do have a vaild reason for not seeing the film. But based on this it promises to be a visually rich experience.
