'The Great Gatsby's' Special Effects

The Great Gatsby VFX from Chris Godfrey on Vimeo.

The Great Gatsby was a wonderful visual snack, but much more technical than the casual viewer may realize. This video shows how the scenes were made with green screen and other effects. Some may surprise you.

A man named Chris Godfrey was the visual effects (VFX)supervisor on the film. This before and after sizzler reel shows just a few of the 1500 shots that have some VFX work in them. Amazing.
