It’s obviously no secret that a large amount of films these days are flooded with computer-generated imagery which aid in certain aspects of the film; whether it’s creating specific looks, certain events to occur, or just making our favorite superheroes buzz through the sky. It is however, surprising to find out after watching such a realistic film like Zodiac that a large amount of what you just witnessed was played out in front of a blue-screen.
Filmstalker has found a very interesting behind-the-scenes clip from visual effects studio Digital Domain which reveals aspects of Zodiac which have been computer-generated. It is surprising to discover the extent of the CGI elements, as the film has such a realistic look and feel which doesn’t come across as being digitally created.
It is a very cool clip which shows you exactly where Fincher used visual effects to enhance the look of his scenes.
