Watch: Surprising & Seamless 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' VFX Reel
When you think of films that have enough visual effects to show off a reel, you think of directors like Steven Spielberg, Michael Bay, Guillermo del Toro, Peter Jackson, and any big budget blockbuster. But nowadays, some visual effects just make production easier, even on films that don't have to create dragons, monsters, or entire environments from scratch. One such surprising collection of visual effects comes in this reel showing off some of the post-production work on Wes Anderson's latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. They're not necessarily all visual effects in the way we're used to seeing since some of it is just selective color correction, but there's some great work here you otherwise might not be aware of yet. Watch!
Here's the visual effects reel for The Grand Budapest Hotel from Look Effects, Inc. (click to watch):
The Grand Budapest Hotel is written and directed by Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore) and tells of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century. Fox Searchlight released The Grand Budapest Hotel in limited theaters on March 7th and may still be playing right now.
