Pixar has always excelled at creating unique and appealing characters in its films. With Finding Dory, the studio already had the appeal of Nemo, his father Marlin and of course the forgetful blue tang Dory, so any new characters had to be something extra special.

The feature, which represents Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones’ leap into major studio fare, is based on Blizzard Entertainment’s franchise of Warcraft video games. Set in the fictional universe of Azeroth, the film, like the games, sees humans battle giant creatures called orcs. Orc actors like Toby Kebbell (who plays leader Durotan) and Anna Galvin (his partner, Draka) conduct themselves entirely via performance capture throughout the film, which was shot in early 2014 and reportedly underwent 20 months of post-production.

Dan Trachtenberg’s highly secretive 10 Cloverfield Lane surprised audiences when it was released in March with its tense horror-thriller plot and surprise ending (btw, spoilers!). The JJ Abrams / Bad Robot-produced film mainly plays out in a doomsday bunker until the main character Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) finally encounters a mysterious space ship and alien creature above ground. Bad Robot’s in-house VFX unit Kelvin Optical completed these complicated effects as well as many other invisible shots. vfxblog talked to visual effects supervisor Luke McDonald, who also detailed deleted scenes and some unexpected effects duties.

Japanese audio gear manufacturer Zoom have been on quite the roll in the last 12 months by unleashing their top-end Zoom F8 multi-track recorder and more recently the new Zoom H4n Pro 4-track handy field recorder aimed at musicians, podcasters and of course low-budget filmmakers using DSLR style cameras, which lack professional XLR connectivity or high-quality pro audio recording features. DSLR shooters may be very well familiar with the original H4n handy recorder, which has been a favourite among the DSLR crowd for the last few years, and now the new H4n Pro successor is far from just a cosmetic upgrade to the classic H4n.

Legendary editor Anne V. Coates has won two and been nominated for five Oscars (including a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007). The nonagenarian editor refuses to use Avid; instead, Coates said she "has her own system" which was custom-made to her preferences—much like the one made for Thelma Schoonmaker—though she refuses to elaborate on the details.

Here’s the deal. A few years ago, I proposed a theory that makes the case for how and why every Pixar movie from Toy Story to WALL-E exists in a shared universe with a single, overarching narrative. The case I make is fueled by easter eggs, cameos, story themes, and other clues that make up what I call The Pixar Theory.
