Watch This: VFX Breakdown from Only God Forgives

Only God Forgives VFX

You probably shouldn’t watch this if you don’t like blood and guts and gore but you totally should watch this if you want to see how some amazing effects come together. Remember, it’s all fake. That’s actually the point of this video.

The big effects here are awesome but my favourite ones from this video are all the small changes. getting rid of dolly tracks. Removing background elements. Removing blinks. It goes to show you that VFX aren’t all about big flashy moments, they’re as much about setting tone and heightening the experience in smaller ways and when isn’t not showing how they achieved cutting an arm off this breakdown shows that beautifully.
