The good, the bad and the invisible: VFX video essay

Filmmaking techniques • Written by Genero

Amazing, wonderfully executed CG is everywhere – you just don’t know it.

If you’ve watched any Hollywood blockbusters in the past decade, you’ve probably complained about the terrible, over-saturated CGI.

This clever new video essay from Freddie Wong uses examples of great, ‘invisible’ effects to make the point that CG imagery is among the most useful filmmaking tools available — it just has to be used well.

Make sure you watch this one with captions on to see all the films featured!
