Academy VFX Bake-Off

Saturday, January 5th, I had the pleasure of watching the Academy’s VFX Bake-Off at ILM/Lucasfilm! This was their first year live-streaming to three places (San Francisco, London, and New Zealand); it’s usually in a big theater down in LA where everyone from the VFX branch comes to watch before and after reels and VFX reels for each of the 10 shortlisted movies.

They were:

Ant Man and The Wasp

Avengers: Infinity War

Black Panther

Christopher Robin

First Man

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Mary Poppins Returns

Ready Player One

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Welcome to Marwen

It was amazing to see all the detail and behind the scenes that goes into all of these movies. There are a surprising amount of VFX in every movie you see.

For a more detailed look at the day check out this write-up here.
