  • Good stuff! I haven't seen the show either (yet), but I love these VFX breakdown videos. If you're on Twitter, stuff like this tends to pop up about once a week, unfortunately I don't get the time to post them all on the forums, but I do usually tweet them from @Lightmillfilms.
  • Awesome post!
    Thats amazing how they can just replace an entire scene with visual effects.

    I also haven't seen the show, but the effects look just as impressive as Game of Thrones, which is saying something. I need to check this show out.
  • Looks great. What on earth is with the weird face-on-sunglasses bit? Is that in the show or was that just the VFX guys showing off their work in a weird way?

    That is a character in the show whose face was shot off in the war. The plastic face mold is that era's plastic surgery so his disfigurement won't shock as easily.
    I picked up the first season a week ago and really like the show.
  • The effects in Boardwalk Empire is probably some of the best I've seen on television. The effects are so subtle that it does not distract one bit from the story. It's remarkable.

    Great special effects indeed ... love also the VFX breakdowns.
    Also worth watching are the shorts made by the members of Vancouver Film School.
    Here's one example:
