Whether you like/love/loathe it, Batman v Superman is a pretty spectacular movie to look at. I don’t know many people who think the cinematography is less than gorgeous. Part of this superhero spectacle’s pleasure to the eyes is the hundreds (thousands?) of visual effects.
Scanline is the proud owner of the effects and this week, they are showing a highlight reel of their work. Check it out.
What is striking to me is the amount of work done for this movie that I didn’t know. Now, I’m not a technical guru whose nose is in the air spotting every moment of CG work. I do get distracted from a film if their work isn’t up to the high standard we have set in our world today.
For this movie? Wow! The Batmobile chase, the flood, Wayne Manor, Lex’s landing pad, the rocket explosion. All of these had some element of visual effects, and while I know it isn’t entirely real, I also can’t spot a defect. That’s what helps make a movie work for me.
Scanline, you have my vote. Of course, they don’t need it and the future of their company isn’t based purely on my words. But, I’m a ticket buyer who recognized your work, and I applaud it.
