Dan Kaufman :: Artist Profile

Hey there,

Image Engine executives Shawn Walsh and Peter Muyzers called Dan Kaufman to be VFX Supervisor on the 'District 9' movie. This call out of the blue turned into a pretty cool project for Kaufman. One of a list of them actually. Check out what else he's done, and also chat with the man himself. Click the image for the story.

Best movie I've seen in years! The low budget statement isn't that true, I'd say this is a high budget film. A high budget of quality that is.

Looks fantastic ... i remember seeing the demo here on cgtalk years ago which i guess must have drummed up some peter jackson love, couldnt wait then and cant wait now. The story line just looks awesome.

Incredible movie, and great feature.

Its great to know that such a relatively low budget movie featuring a cast of unknowns can excite people and win the critics over. I would much rather watch something like this than the usual big budget celebrity filled hollywood movie cliche. The whole film - the setting, the characters, the downplayed effects, the pacing and especially the cinematography just felt fresh and more mature than the usual action film.

I saw a feature on how they created the SPOILER *mech* SPOILER in it, but i cant for the life of me find it or remember what site it was on! I thought it was a CGsociety feature, but i cant find it.

I didnt read it at the time as it probably contained spoilers, but now i have seen it, im dying to read more on its creation.

Can anyone help out with a link?
