Interesting Video on the Invisible Art of Visual Effects

Visual effects are a component of film that are constructed with the same precision and artistic creativity as nearly anything else in a film.  However, there’s a major difference that separates visual effects from other aspects of the movie.  While many key elements of a movie are deliberate such as costumes, coloring, a film’s setting, props, etc etc, visual effects are the complete opposite.  In order for them to work they have to be as subtle as possible so the viewer doesn’t even know that the effects are taking place.

If you think you’re an expert at spotting visual effects consider that nearly every movie made these days features some sort of digital effects compositing.  From sets to weather effects to the vehicles driving by in the background, they are nearly everywhere you look.  But to what extent?  This eye opening video by Roy Peker gently tears back the layers of digital deception to show us what often lies beneath each frame of film, namely an actor on a green screen set.
