Side by Side Video Highlights The Talents of Visual Effects Teams (NSFW)

From time to time, we show of some behind the scenes videos of popular movies and TV shows that highlight the hard work done behind the camera to make the stories come alive. However, rarely do we get to see a side by side comparison of a visual effect heavy movie such as Final Destination 5, showing us all the hard work that is done to seamlessly create exciting moments on a budget.

Found through a stream of comments on reddit, the 9 minute video above shows us the before and after that goes into creating a special effects heavy movie. While the green screen work is very prevalent, the camera and stunt work is also incredible, and often neglected. Watch the video above for a look into the hard work that has to go into films after their filmed, and watch the video below for even more mesmerizing before and after footage from the hard work of  the people who don't nearly get enough exposure. Footage like this is made possible by teams of dozens working hard to make everything blend perfectly.

If the did this side by side screening for the entire movie, the movie would have done so much better in the box office.

Yes, We VFX artist put a lot of hard work to look it realistic. I appreciate your support Fstoppers. If it supports ten you can look at my VFX work at www.vimeo.com/mayankeshranjan. :)

great reel man:) the elegance and the winter are pretty amazing.

I have watched the video several times now, I can't even begin to think about how many hours have gone into these special effects alone. Seriously the people who do this stuff need more credit. Incredible.
