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.
Ant Man and The Wasp
Avengers: Infinity War
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.
