Regardless of your feelings about Pacific Rim, I bet you were impressed by the visuals. At least, I hope so. The battles between the Jaegers and Kaiju were nothing short of awesome, and it took a lot of work to transform them from drawings into living and breathing robots and monsters. Guillermo del Toro’s in-house VFX team, Mirada, created the opening sequence, and they’ve released a video showing the before and after shots that reveal how shots were composited layer by layer. It’s insane and gives me a whole new appreciation for the film.
Be amazed by the video after the break.
