COMMENTARY: What Pros Think About Visual Effects in Film and TV
Writer and producer Jason Hellerman writes:
Visual effects: when they’re good, they’re invisible. When they’re bad, they’re all you can see. But what do the pro’s think about some of today’s VFX-laden film and television?
I love big-budget shows and movies because they transport me into worlds I never thought possible. But when the VFX budgets on these shows hurt or are lacking, you can see the pain on the screen and it takes you out of the experience.
And moviegoers aren’t very forgiving of bad VFX. The director of Sonic announced this week that he would go back into the movie and reformat the character’s look based on Internet comments and trolls.
But how can you tell good VFX from bad? And would it be easy to fix for any pro?
