The Making of Pacific Rim's Prologue
Love these effects reels that show how scenes are composited together with layers of real footage, practical effects, and compter graphics. Plus we get to scrutinize Pacific Rim's past-paced prologue that told the story of the Kaiju war before the events of the movie. Mild spoilers, in case you haven't seen the movie. "Storytelling studio Mirada was the creative and technical force behind the two-minute prologue of Guillermo del Toro's robots vs. monsters epic, Pacific Rim. Working closely with del Toro, who co-founded Mirada with Pacific Rim DP Guillermo Navarro, director Mathew Cullen and Javier Jimenez, the Mirada team designed, created, shot and edited the key sequence, which included over 80 fast-moving visual effects shots."
