          MPC delivered 425 shots for Ridley Scott’s The Martian, which is one of the leading contenders for a VFX Oscar — hell, for an Oscar period as well — at the ceremony at the end of February. This showreel illustrates why.

                    Star Wars used more CGI than you thought http://www.redsharknews.com/post/item/3173-star-wars-used-more-cgi-than-you-thought http://www.redsharknews.com/post/item/3173-star-wars-used-more-cgi-than-you-thought There are 10 minutes of this :-)

                    Star Wars rapidly creates its own mythology, and one of the main myths already surrounding The Force Awakens was that it was the long-awaiting triumphal return of practical effects. And it was, but only to an extent.
