      Editing Dialogue by moviola.com

      July 11, 2018, 9:17 am
      Good editors tend to work viscerally; shot choice and cut points for dialogue scenes are chosen as often by instinct as they are by careful deliberation. So it’s not too surprising that when you ask an editor how they come to their decisions they’ll often respond with a blank stare. This is where the study of editing comes in.

      VFX: The Saddest/Beautiful Part of Fallen Kingdom

      July 11, 2018, 5:27 am
      The sight of a brachiosaurus being enveloped in an ash cloud after the volcanic eruption of Isla Nublar – as several characters and other dinosaurs leave the island by boat – was a powerful moment in J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. vfxblog asked ILM animation supervisor Jance Rubinchik about the approach to that touching scene, which turned out to be a direct reference back to the original Jurassic Park.

      VFX Legion Completes FX for SUPERFLY Remake

      July 11, 2018, 5:26 am
      VFX Legion created over 100 digital effects for ‘Superfly,’ Sony’s highly anticipated remake of the iconic ‘70’s Blaxploitation film. The deadline was only five weeks away, and the visual effects for key action sequences had yet to be assigned when producer Joel Silver and Director X brought the LA studio onboard. Legion’s team was tasked with producing a complex mix of shots designed to heighten the visual impact and visceral feel of the violence in the film’s two pivotal shootout scenes.

      Film Theory: Why Don't We Notice Cuts?

      July 10, 2018, 9:02 am
      Bertolt Brecht is a well-known playwright and director of the early twentieth century. The Brechtian approach to theater alienated the audience to remind them that they were watching a production and not something real. This was a far cry from other playwrights at the time, who sought to immerse their audiences in their stories. A few of the techniques Brecht used included breaking the fourth wall, displaying placards that informed the audience of the location or time of the scene, and including song and dance.
