The Great Gatsby VFX Breakdown

Published on Jun 30 2013 // Animation / VFX, Visual Effects

Effects supervisor Chris Godfrey has posted a before and after video showing some of the 1500 effects shots that were created to bring us the 1920s New York City.


Chris Godfrey, “Baz has graciously agreed to let us release this ‘before and afters’ reel to show our peer group the VFX work completed on his film ‘The Great Gatsby’. While this specific reel was the work of Animal Logic (as my primary vendor), in total I worked with 7 vendors including Animal Logic, Rising Sun and Iloura in Australia, ILM in San Francisco and also Prime Focus and Method Vancouver. We also ran an amazing internal SWAT team that completed over 400 shots. Congratulations to all who did such fabulous work on almost 1500 shots.

Many thanks to Baz, CM, Catherine Knapman, Chris DeFaria and Mark Brown – and of course Prue Fletcher and Joyce Cox.”
