The cloth and the rigging of joints in hands, for example, have that tell tale video game feeling, similar to some of the World War Z doubles.

There is a 1280x720 HD version on Game Trailers if people are still waiting for an HD trailer. I don't want to sound like I am not blown away, because I am definitely blown away, but this is still a game cinematic. I couldn't imagine thinking it is real. This makes me super excited for what we can expect from the next generation of game titles.


As per my comment, it looks stylistic REAL to me.

Remember all those photograph that make real scenery look like miniatures?

And the photographs by a guy with a model of oversize coin and how he make normal things look small?

That is my view/opinion of this piece. it's like a real actor with some make-up, tried to move like a cg character inside a game, and the cloth are designed to feel that way (maybe card board and what not sewn up inside).

You know, it kind of like when an actor is playing an actor that wasn't good at his job.

It's like how that anthony hopkins try not to blink in silence of the lamb.

anyway, great job!

The Engineers were augmented and in some shots completely replaced with CG.

It really is a mix in most movies nowadays, they usually build the suits/puppets even if none of it ends in the movie because it's good lighting/shading reference to have it on set. But usually some of it is a suit or puppet and some is CG and sometimes they even blend between the two.

That I would really want to see some behind the scenes on. Not counting FX shots like where the Engineer is wrestling with the monster or dissolving in water, I would have to wonder when, where and why they would be CG.

As seen in behind the scenes and some friends who worked on it, they were mostly the suit, only the eyes were replaced with bigger wider ones (except the beginning which was still the suit blending to cg and the final scene...

The recent one i was amazed to know was CG is the car in Jurassic park beneath the Trex with kids in it.. when i watched the making of and saw the wire frame i couldn't believe it...

But was the car actually rendered or was the wireframe just there to capture shadows and reflections from the dinosaur?

I did watch The Impossible the other day, the film about the Indian Ocean tsunami.
I was definitely thinking, there are some nice RealFlow affects in there but checked the making of anyway...

Wrong! The waves were all real. That poor woman at the start of the clip really did get a battering, ouch!

But I'm confused why they said VFX would be more expensive?
