A behind the scenes look at the previz work for Star Wars, Cloverfield, Prince Caspian, Lair and Lost Odyssey.
Its really unbelievable how much work goes into a movie or game these days. Not only do you have visual effects combined with actors and green screens but you also have all that core work that is done before the movie cameras start rolling (yes I know they technically don’t roll anymore but you get the point). Previsualization (otherwise known as previs or previz) is the key part of the process that allows the director to come in and says I want this too look like this or more like this without wasting huge amounts of money on redoing the scene on set or fixing it in post. So in a sense The Third Floor is famous for saving us all money and helping to produce quality animation, timing and effects.
