VFX breakdown of the upcoming movie Aquaman

The trailer Aquaman of  has been on the trending videos on YouTube for quite some time now. DC fans are all hyped up to finally get a decent DC individual hero film after all the back to back Marvel action that we are getting from the past couple of months. Jason Momoa had taken a long pause from the silver screen and we get to welcome him again with Aquaman. Aquaman is the story of the comic character of the same name. In this film we will witness Aquaman’s struggle between a surface world that ravages the sea and the underwater Atlanteans who are ready to revolt.

The trailer itself speaks for the visual effects of this film. VFX courses all around cannot stop blabbering about how inspirational that looked. The thing with visual effects as per aquatic and blue backgrounds is that the chroma keying is bit difficult. Chroma key is the method with which you edit the green screens and replace them with the desired picture.

After Game of Thrones and Justice League, this would be Jason Momoa’s grand reentry on the silver screen.

You will be shocked to know that though the majority of film is based on aquatic surfaces not a lot of it was shot on it. The major part of the film was shot in front of green screens. Later in the post production and editing everything was done using CGI. The thing with special effects in this film was that; no one could tell if the water visible on screen was real or computer graphics. It was that good! In addition to that, you would be shocked to find out that only a tub or pool area of water was actually utilized to show the entire sea or ocean area.

Using references that small is highly commendable. The VFX supervisors of this film are two time academy winner Charles Gibson and the very talented Kelvin Mcllwain. The companies which would be providing visual effects for this film are:

  • Rodeo FX, Scanline VFX
  • Moving Picture Company (MPC)
  • Industrial Light & Magic (ILM)
  • Method Studios
  • Weta Digital

That is one hell of an impressive list. The VFX editors of this film had to go through some training as well from a VFX training institute to learn some additional skills that are assimilated into the aquatic and water based CGI.

If you are someone who is also passionate about creating art and making unbelievable characters a reality then VFX training in Kolkata would be the best option to pursue. Contact Hi-Tech Animation Academy to learn about their VFX course and 100% placement assistance.
