Zodiac VFX, plus The Host

It’s time for some shameless self-promotion aimed at my day job. I didn’t write Film & Video‘s new story on the obsessive visual-effects work that went into Zodiac, but I did build the Flash presentation that presents video clips and before-and-after slides showing some of the results. Crack VFX guru Barbara Robertson actually wrote the story, which goes into great detail on the digital imagery that saturates the first third of the film. I did write the new F&V story on creature effects for The Host, which isn’t as detailed but has some tidbits about how San Francisco VFX shop The Orphanage communicated with Bong Joon-ho back in South Korea. (Also, if you’ve ever muttered to yourself, “Hrmm, possibly there is some connection between Tod Browning’s Freaks and Bong Joon-ho’s The Host, but I can’t put my finger on it”, well, wonder no more.)
