When you think of special effects, you think of huge blockbuster movies like Marvel’s superhero lineup, Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, and J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek and the Star Wars franchise he’s now working on, just to name a few. One movie you wouldn’t think of, however, is Martin Scorsese‘s multi-Oscar-nominated The Wolf of Wall Street.
But the truth is—for better or for worse—we live in a digital world, and filmmaking is constantly evolving. So, naturally, it only makes sense that any and all movies that can afford to use some of the insane digital effects tricks we can pull off these days will do just that, including the big awards contenders. It’s actually a little scary how much effects wizards can manipulate these days.
Click on over to the other side to check out an effects reel for The Wolf of Wall Street to see just how fake some of the scenes that appeared perfectly real (in a physical sense) actually were.
The reel comes from Brainstorm Digital, who have worked on a bunch of big movies and TV shows. You can check out more of their reels at their official website.
