Amazing Behind-the-Scenes Video of the Flying Shots in 'Chronicle'
If you're reading this, you probably love movie-making as much as I do, the process of creating these films we all love. Our friends at SlashFilm have found a fantastic, but altogether way too short, featurette from The Daily looking at behind-the-scenes of the flying shots in Josh Trank's Chronicle, the superpowers found-footage film that was quite a hit earlier this year. It'll be on DVD in May, packed with more of this I'm sure, but in the meantime this is too cool not to watch. The video features Raymond Chen of Rhythm & Hues, one of the big VFX companies, talking about how they created the various flying scenes. Check it out!
Here is The Daily's behind-the-scenes featurette for Josh Trank's Chronicle, posted on YouTube:
Three high school student friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery. Soon, though, they find their lives begin to spin out of control and their bonds tested as they embrace their darker sides.
Chronicle is directed by first-time feature filmmaker Josh Trank, of a few episodes of "The Kill Point" TV series. The project was conceived by Trank and Max Landis, son of filmmaker John Landis, both credited for the story, but only Max for the screenplay. 20th Century Fox produced and released Chronicle in theaters on February 3rd earlier this year, to much success. What are you capable of? Hitting DVD/Blu-Ray in May.

I really liked the idea and it is great to watch the three guys experiment with their powers. It could have been done better, though. The unnatural motion in the flying scenes mentioned in the video is just one of the minor flaws.

It's probably just a taste of the Special Features on the DVD/Blu. I like to see they still use real people and rigs and green screen as the foundation for these sorts of effects, rather than just create everything on a computer.

Loved this movie. It was made for 12M and thus far has grossed over 170M and the effects were awesome. I am really into this new take on the superhero movie and am also looking foward to The Avengers and The Guardians (it's a fun action/comedy superhero movie by Legacy Filmworks where a team of villains have to team up to stop a Justice League- like superteam from secretly taking over the world!). The script was really fresh and fun and Bradley Cooper would be spot on as the lead Lex Luther-like villain Gabe Grant. As for Chronicle 2 I want Steve back. He was super cool!
