When we watch movies, we find ourselves wondering what it would be like to be in their world. Don’t lie, you’ve always wanted to live in the world of Gotham City at some point in your life. Or what it would be like to live in a world where people are being attacked by dragons. But the reality is that what we see in the movies and how the set actually looks like is completely different. I know…what a bummer.
There are a number of movies that don’t look quite as cool without the visual effects. A lot of us don’t even realize how much goes into making a film. The visual effects guys do such an incredible job, that we got lost in the world of the movie and completely get mesmerized by what we see. The video clip you see down below goes through a few movies that looked totally cool on the big screen, but behind the scenes, it was a bit of a different story.
Take for example the film Life of Pi. In the movie, the main character spends most of the movie in the middle of the ocean. In a boat. Oh, and there’s a tiger on the boat as well. Looked like a pretty crazy movie, except for the fact that in reality the entire movie was actually filmed in front of a blue screen and there was no tiger. It was completely CGI. Okay, except during the close-up scenes with the tiger…that was actually a real one.
Then there’s Wolf of Wall Street. You’d think a movie that is based on a true story wouldn’t require any blue or green screen but…it does! It was used for foreign locations that the characters visited, to enhance the beach houses the characters partied at and of course to have a lion walking through a house randomly. Could’ve fooled us Wall Street, could’ve fooled us!
