Watch a Compelling Visual Effects Reel for ‘The Great Gatsby’


The visual effects supervisor on Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, Chris Godfrey, has published a reel showing what the movie looked like before and after VFX were applied to the F. Scott Fitzgerald adaptation. The movie is composed of almost 1500 different shots, and Godfrey worked with seven different effects studios to help create the opulent settings for old New York and Jay Gatsby’s (Leonardo DiCaprio) lavish parties. See how Godfrey made magic happen, below.
