CGI & VFX Before & After: "BlackPhone" - by VFX Legion | TheCGBros

Check out this revealing Before & After "VFX Legion" from the talented team at VFX Legion

The End-to-End Visual Effects Company Creates the Effects for Director Scott Derrickson’s Newest Horror Film, Heightening the Thrills with VFX Firmly Grounding the Supernatural in the Real World.

Led by co-founders senior VFX supervisor James David Hattin and VFX producer Nate Smalley, Legion’s team designed and produced designed a wide range of shots that run the gamut – from complex sequences combining animated digital doubles with practical stunts, greenscreen, set extensions, CG environments, rebuilt camera transitions, crowd duplication, and a mix of dynamics - to removing rigging, and digitally deleting elements out of place with the authentic look of the era.

The LA and B.C.-based visual effects company contributed to every phase of the creative process - from pre-production and on-set supervision, through post-production. Brought on board early, Legion visualized digital options and worked closely with the director, helping develop the tone of the film before shooting began.
