Weta Digital has released this behind the scenes look at the VFX for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Watching something like this, you have to wonder just how amazing the future of movies is going to be.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set in a post apocalyptic future where a nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar are battling for dominance with a band of human survivors. Emotive themes of family, compassion and betrayal are carried by a cast of fully CG apes who deliver intelligent and emotional performances as believable as their human counterparts.
See how Weta Digital's on-set performance capture helped artists bring the amazing performances the actors delivered on the film set through to the digital characters in the finished picture, and how we created a startling post-virus San Francisco.
