George Miller offers interesting insights into the visual effects used in FURIOSA

George Miller he is an exceptional director who has made some extraordinary films throughout his career and his Mad Max universe movies are badass!

When you watch those movies, you can see that Miller loves to lean on practical effects and real hardcore stunts. He loves capturing those epic action sequences straight from the camera and what he delivers is absolutely mind blowing!

But you can’t make these movies without using some kind of visual effects to fix things. When it comes to Furious AND Way of Fury there are a lot of visual effects, but it uses them in ways you might not notice. He doesn’t use them in obvious ways.

During an interview with io9, Miller offered some interesting insights into the film’s visual effects, saying, “In Way of FuryIn [Furiosa]there are almost no shots that have not been digitally manipulated.”

He added: “For example, changing the sky. When Steven Spielberg I’m shooting Jaws, the sea was constantly changing. If you watch that film one moment it’s discontinuous, one moment it’s flat. You don’t need to do that anymore.”

So, pretty much every take Way of Fury AND Furious they added some kind of visual effects, but most of these things are really subtle.

Miller went on to talk about the epic action sequence, “The Stowaway,” as an example, saying, “When you shoot extended sequences like ‘The Stowaway’ sequence, that was shot in 78 days.

“It’s a 15-minute sequence but the skies are consistent. So we took what we thought was a beautiful sky and we can reproduce it throughout history.

“So some shots have the real sky because the real sky looked really beautiful. But in the next shot, the sky could have been completely different, so we were able to make it match. You can do it.”

Miller returned to Jaws, saying, “If we were filming Jaws again today, the sea would be consistent. Even meticulous filmmakers, guys like David Lean when they shot Lawrence of Arabia – obsessively, meticulous with the camera, the lighting and so on – you can see where they shot at different times of the day and so on. Now you can avoid it to some extent. It’s a much smoother experience.”

It makes sense that filmmakers would take advantage of these innovative cinematic tools to bring their film visions to life on the big screen.

Furious it’s in theaters now and you should go see it!
