Life of Pi: For Your Consideration, Visual Effects

I promised more looks at the nominated crafts people behind Life of Pi, Ang Lee's 11 time nominated film based on Yann Martel's best seller.  Here's a peek at the work of Bill Westenhofer, the Visual Effects Supervisor nominated for some truly spectacular effects. Check it out to see how Westenhofer and his crew brought this mysterious and magical film to life.

The other films in competition in the Visual Effects category are  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Avengers, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Prometheus.

Thanks to Deadline for sharing.

  1. I've tried to read this book several times, but could never get into it (which is surprising as I've had a love affair with Indian lit for a long time).
    But the movie was gorgeous. The cinematography was amazing, moving, beautiful and oh so memorable....we (hubby and 2 teenage stepsons) were still talking about it at dinner tonight.
    But I still feel no urge to read the book!

    1. It was gorgeous wasn't it? I really loved those first beautiful opening moments floating along to Mycheal Danna's score ... and getting used to 3D. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Claudio Miranda won a trophy for cinematography or Danna for his score. Beautiful film and no known names or faces onscreen!
      I'm glad you and all your boys enjoyed it. I still haven't seen The Hobbit - I wonder what they they thought of that if they've seen it?
