My name is Chris Godfrey and I was the VFX supervisor on the film.
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 'The Great Gatsby'. While this specific reel was the work of Animal Logic (as my primary vendor), in total I worked with 7 vendors including Animal Logic, Rising Sun and Iloura in Australia, ILM in San Francisco and also Prime Focus and Method Vancouver. We also ran an amazing internal SWAT team that completed over 400 shots. Congratulations to all who did such fabulous work on almost 1500 shots.

I wanna see The Zombie Gatsby.
Although the film was entertaining and, for the most part, faithful to the book, I was turned off by the anachronisms. In 1922, the year the movie was set, people didn’t dance to disco and rap music, and neither did they drive cars from 1929.
It’s part of the Post Modern swirl.
trying to put lipstick on a pig. you just can’t beat the redford/farrow version...
Maybe they had a flux capacitor.
Just hearing the name Baz Luhrmann triggers my labyrinthitis.
