The Secret of their Eyes - Huracan full length vfx breakdown

From a cine­ma­to­graphy stand­point this scene can be con­sidered insane: start­ing from a heli­copter we enter a full soccer-stadium where vari­uos people meet, fight throught the back­door area of the sta­dium and finally one char­ac­ter ends up on the play­ing field — all in one shot! This extens­ive VFX break­down of this amaz­ing scene shows the equally insame amount of work that went into mak­ing this mad concept a real­ity. The final shot looks abso­lutely flaw­less and I am sure many view­ers never con­sidered how impossible the whole scene actu­ally is.

Kamaljeet Singh - Compositing Demoreel 2012

I never get tired of telling my 3D ren­der­ing friends about how much work is actu­ally done in com­pos­it­ing. Kamaljeet Singh from New Dehli has for­tu­nately cre­ated a nice demoreel show­ing off exactly how many lay­ers are cre­ated and used in seem­ingly simple shots. Thanks for send­ing this in, btw.

Rugby Stadium Shot Breakdown

The CG-stadium is so per­vas­ive in con­tem­por­ary TV that I just wait for a com­pany spe­cial­iz­ing in only doing that. But for now every artist and stu­dio has their own way of approach­ing stadium-shots. Justin Bates has cre­ated a very con­cise over­view of what goes into a seem­ingly simple shot of a rugby-stadium. It’s almost like a super-short tutorial and a great starting-point if you need to cre­ate some­thing sim­ilar yourself.

Making a chicken play chess with VFX

Why is every VFX break­down worth watch­ing made by ONER Vfx recently? I really can’t tell, it’s not like they’re pay­ing us to post their video (I wish!). It’s just every time I find a video I need to post here, it’s them. Non­ethe­less, you have to watch these fant­astic clips of how they made a chicken play chess and solve a Rubik’s cube. Their solu­tions to these seem­ingly insur­mount­able prob­lems are as effi­cient as they are high quality.

Digital costumes in

Oh boy, “The Green Lan­tern” wasn’t a very good movie. What suprised me the most was the incred­ible resources that were put into the fully digital cos­tumes, none of which were really help­ing this movie. The work by highly-specialized image-based 3D stu­dio PEANUT is still quite astound­ing, which you can wit­ness in these nice side-by-side break­downs of scenes from the movie.

Restyling stock-footage

Now here’s an idea I haven’t heard before: why not take some high qual­ity stock foot­age, but use 3D-tracking and pro­jec­tion map­ping to make it truly unique? It’s such an effe­cient way to get high qual­ity on a tight sched­ule! This short clip by La Sociedad Post and ONER Vfx shows how good this concept actu­ally works.

Momentum - Croatian Kings VFX breakdowns

How far can VFX go with a 2,5-man team for a his­tor­ical TV-production in Croa­tia? Pretty far obvi­ously as you can see in this inter­est­ing VFX break­down video from Momentum Stu­dio. These brave war­ri­ors on the CG front achieved some pleas­ing res­ults under undoubtetly tight budget constraints.

Film CGI Peugeot 308 Breakdown

So you thought car com­mer­cials were greatly mod­i­fied with digital VFX? Think again! Why film any­thing at all if you can cre­ate the whole thing from scratch? This short break­down of a Peugot com­mer­cial will show you the true power of mod­ern 3D visuals.
