Something practical to start your day with.

Ever wondered about what the CGI/Practical Effects ratio is in popular movies? Do you think that’s an incredibly nerdy sentence? If the answer to either of those questions is yes then look no further.

Although the use of CGI and VFX is growing in Hollywood, there is still a large amount of practical effects used in movies today. The quality of practical effects is getting so good, sometimes there’s hardly any need to even use CGI in post production.

This video gives a brief glimpse into the lengths many modern films and TV shows will go to achieve their story in a practical and realistic way.  From Jurassic Park, to Westworld, to Black Panther.

Some effects might be obvious, especially by now we know many of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park were animatronic, but many others are actually quite surprising, and they all pay off in the end.

There are obviously hundreds if not, thousands of popular movies which have successfully used practical effects to tell their story, but here is just a short list of a few of the most impressive, which isn’t to say they’re the only impressive ones.
