You’re probably aware that we here at Awesome Friday HQ loved Pacific Rim. It didn’t do so hot in domestic theatres, however it’s still an amazingly crafted film. Here’s a chance to see some of that craft work.
Mirada, a company founded by director Guillermo del Toro along with Guillermo Navarro (Director of Photography) and Mathew Cullen and Javier Jimenez put together the prologue of the film. That sequence, just 2 odd minutes long, does a brilliant job of setting up the movie and the world we get to inhabit.
So here’s a video that outlines all of the effects in that sequence. It’s impressive stuff to say the least. In fact I don’t usually like behind the scenes stuff (sometimes it makes it too hard to suspend disbelief) but this is just too damn impressive to not share.
