Modern Cinema, as we know it, would not be possible without the invention of visual effects. The current state of the art is a clear indication that VFX as an industry is, indeed, set to be ever-expanding and for multiple reasons. Although these reasons have begun, for quite some time already, extending beyond the realm of filmmaking, they still mainly revolve around movies.
What makes VFX important in Cinema?
Almost all movie production studios rely to a certain extent on advanced FX techniques that are nowadays available thanks to exponential technological advances in the last two decades. Contrary to what could be thought, FX techniques can be used in all different movie genres, not just in science fiction and fantasy movies. In fact, 9 out of 10 Hollywood movies deploy advanced FX techniques.
What makes the VFX industry even more relevant is the fact that the movies, which make use of FX technology usually rank higher in the box-office list. A glimpse at the list of the latest ranking of the fifty highest-grossing films worldwide of all time is very telling. A few films from the list include Avengers: Endgame (2019), Avatar (2009), Black Panther (2018), and Captain Marvel (2019).
What Filmmakers can do with VFX?
VFX technology has given the filmmaker the ability to convey a story most extraordinarily; and as the FX tools and techniques continue to improve and develop, filmmakers have acquired the power of reinventing the cinematic visual experience. Here are a few examples of what the filmmakers can do with the VFX technology:
- Add locations, stunts, and sets
- Create total virtual worlds
- Build sets that are impossible or costly or time-consuming to be built in real life
- Expand the existing set
- Add computer-generated elements
