Baz Luhrman's 'The Great Gatsby' - Before And After Visual Effects (VIDEO)

Want an insight into the amazing work of movie visual effects teams? Just watch this video, uploaded to Vimeo by Chris Godfrey, the VFX supervisor on 'The Great Gatsby'.

"Baz has graciously agreed to let us release this 'before and afters' reel to show our peer group the VFX work completed on his film," explains Godfrey. The reel shows the work of seven companies who did visual effects work on the film; together with an internal team, they worked on almost 1500 shots in total.

Click play on the video above to marvel at their work (and to realise how much of what you see on the silver screen is actually post-production magic). Although we have to say: those VFX are nothing compared to the ones in this Gatsby trailer...
