Why wait for DVD? The “bonus features” on many older DVD releases (and laserdiscs, for the ’90s folks) pale in comparison to some of the effects breakdowns and other filmmaking explanations that are available in video form all over the internet. The entire internet is now a cache of info about the creation of films, even as they’re in theaters.
So here are a few choice bits of info. One is an effects overview for Robert Zemeckis‘ new film, Flight, in which a drunk pilot played by Denzel Washington narrowly pilots a plane away from certain doom. The featurette goes into some of the general effects used for the film, before detailing that crash sequence. You might be surprised at how much practical photography was used to create the views of the inside of the plane during that sequence.
Then there’s a piece on Dredd, and just as parts of Flight required extensive digital alteration or augmentation to present the view the filmmakers wanted, Dredd digitally altered the landscape of Johannesburg and Capetown, South Africa to generate the film’s sprawling Mega-City One. FInally, get some details on how a real Aston Martin was preserved for Skyfall, even as the filmmakers had a real product to damage. Read More »
