The Wolf of Wall Street VFX Highlights from Brainstorm Digital on Vimeo.

Sure, there are a lot of FX heavy blockbusters these days,  filled with plastic-y fake-looking CGI, but at least we still have auteurs like Martin Scorsese to keep film pure!

What? Oh, The Wolf of Wall Street, his film about the ethically-compromised stock traders of the late 80s/early 90s, is chockful of CGI at every turn, apparently. Sure, they didn't have to render dragons or giant robots, but apparently EVERY movie these days requires some effects work for complicated scenes, such as:

  • Sitting in a park
  • Opening a door
  • Walking towards a boat
  • The outside of a window
  • ...and more!
