Blade Runner 2049 VFX Breakdown

Get a load of this, movie fans. Whether you are happy with the movie or not, there's no denying that Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 is one of the most visually astounding movies of this year. Part of this is thanks to master cinematographer Roger Deakins and the entire crew who designed and developed the movie, building giant practical sets along with massive, complex lighting rigs. The other part of the visual experience comes from the extraordinary, seamless visual effects (aka VFX) that make the world complete. VFX studio Rodeo FX, based mostly out of Montreal, has released a breakdown video showing off their work on the movie. It also gives a behind-the-scenes look at how big all the sets were, and how much VFX work went on top of them to make it all seem so real. I love watching these kind of videos. Sit back, relax & enjoy.

Here's the impressive VFX breakdown video from Rodeo FX for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049:

There was a lot less green screen and more practical sets than I expected! Still, fantastic work. One of the best movies this year.
