Visual effects are not just the domain of films where superheroes beat up giant robots or the like. Often, the work of visual effects artists is much more subtle, altering the backgrounds of scenes in order to place the actors in locations that either don’t exist or would be cost-prohibitive for the production to visit. It is a technique that many filmmakers use, including Martin Scorsese who used such set extension techniques in visualizing the decadent world of crooked bond traders seen in The Wolf Of Wall Street. Brainstorm Digital was just one of the effects houses employed by Scrosese to work on The Wolf Of Wall Street and they’ve posted a video on Vimeo showcasing their output. How many of these shots did you realize were actually digital creations?
