What the VFX teams have been able to do over six series of Game of Thrones is incredible – and there looks like some even more amazing CG dragon work to come this series. For Thrillist, I talked to BlueBolt, Pixomondo and Rhythm & Hues about their dragon VFX so far.
Disney were super-secretive about how the Beast was made in Beauty and the Beast. But now, with a making of video of Digital Domain’s work released, they’ve let information out. I talked to some of the DD team and wrote a quick how-to on Thrillist.
That’s what happens to Emily Browning’s character on American Gods, and i wrote about how they did it for Thrillist.
Oh, and the huge gay sex scene. Here’s how the VFX team managed to make those things possible. Their work on the show is incredible.
Here’s my second piece for Thrillist on American Gods, which dives into the Bilquis scenes where she consumes people…as in, consumes via her vagina. It’s crazy!
It’s kind of amazing where vfx in TV is going, isn’t it? American Gods is one of the new shows with such innovative and story-related VFX. I talked to the VFX team for both Thrillist and Cartoon Brew. You gotta see this show.
Thrillist asked me to look into The Lawnmower Man, Brett Leonard’s VR horror/thriller from 1992 and which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this month. I talked to the director and found out some neat things about his approach to the story and visual effects. Check it out here, and stay tuned for more vfx-focused retro coverage of the film, too.
