Midweek Motivations: 5 Cool VFX Breakdowns

5 Cool VFX Breakdowns

I see a lot of movies in the theatre and I find VFX Breakdowns to really be inspiring.

Ready Player One (2018) VFX Breakdown from Digital Domain

I love that they used Dancing with Myself for the VFX breakdown for Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. There is some really fantastic work here! Ready Player One was nominated for an Oscar for Best Achievement in Visual Effects, and a Bafta for Best Achievement in Special Visual Effects.

Welcome to Marwen (2018) VFX Breakdown from Method Studios

I still haven’t seen Robert Zemekis’s Welcome to Marwen but I’m looking forward to it, especially after seeing this VFX breakdown. It’s really impressive! Welcome to Marwen is nominated for 3 Visual Effects Society Awards.

Paddington 2 (2017) VFX Breakdown from Framestore

I loved Paddington 1 and have yet to see Paddington 2 but he’s adorable! This breakdown shows how they combined the live action with the animated character. The film was directed by Paul King and was nominated for 3 2018 BAFTA Awards.

The Greatest Showman (2017) VFX Breakdown from Rodeo FX

I did see this film and I didn’t realize it contained so many miniatures. The old town scenes are impressive.

Salyut-7 (2017) VFX Breakdown from POSTMODERN Digital

I’ve been wanting to see this film and now that it’s streaming, I have no excuse not to see it! This is a Russian film about cosmonauts on Salyut-7. The space shots are amazing.
