Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: VFX Reel

by Kenny Hoeschen

In this fascinating featurette, Weta Digital and Andy Serkis discuss the incredible special effects that went into making the upcoming film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Showing the before and after clips side-by-side of the motion-capture actors and the apes they are portraying demonstrates the capabilities and effort that went into bringing the fictitious apes to life.

In the film, a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes involves a group of scientists in San Francisco struggling to stay alive in the aftermath of a plague that is wiping out humanity, while Caesar (Andy Serkis) tries to maintain dominance over his community of intelligent apes. A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier.
