Seriously this is one of the best reel’s I’ve ever seen. It clearly defines the talent and expertise required of a Visual Effects Artist and the overall vision of a director. Baz Luhrmann and his VFX Supervisor Chris Godfrey have released this 4 minute reel of the before and after of many of the The Great Gatsby’s big scenes. So much blue and green screen work. It really helps you appreciate the collaborative efforts of everyone’s role on set. The actors truly did a superb performance with the amount of screen work involved. They really had to draw hard on their imagination while attempting to connect to Baz Luhrmann’s overall vision. Thanks Chris and Baz for sharing!

An absolute MUST-SEE video:
