When you read about the visual effects in a particular film you might often hear about how certain sequences are planned, shot, and then completed with vfx. Getting to the final shot of course involves a mix of tech and artistry, but what can be just as important is the rapport between the visual effects supervisor and the director.
In this special Academy Awards take, Cartoon Brew spoke with five of the 2018 Oscar-nominated visual effects supervisors for Blade Runner 2049, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Kong: Skull Island, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and War for the Planet of the Apes about that director-vfx supervisor relationship.
The supervisors, already multiple Oscar-nominated or winners, also offer some tips for collaborating with directors, from scoring the gig, planning and previs’ing a show, shooting on set, and working in post-production.
