Breaking Down the VFX of Fury Road

Breaking Down the VFX of Fury Roadzoom in

While much has been made of the incredible stunts, crashes, camerawork, and practical effects in Mad Max: Fury Road, it’s not like the movie doesn’t use digital effects too. It’s just that it uses them effectively. Most of the effects are used to enhance real-world scenes, or to complete a very specific illusion – like¬†adding weather and sky effects, removing an arm from Charlize Theron, or erasing objects like earpieces not wanted in the final film. There were also scenes where actors had to be composited into the vehicles since the stunts would have been too dangerous for actors to be in them.

In this short demo reel, VFX studio Brave New World walks us through a breakdown of some of their effects contributions to the movie. One of the more interesting tweaks in the video is how they have to digitally remove tire tracks in the sand from locations since they certainly couldn’t get all of the chases right on the first take.
