    Re: Paint evaporating nukes - apparently there was an advertising deal in the 1950's where paint suppliers used nuclear tests to show that nice well painted houses would be better at surviving a nuclear attack.

    Would love for you guys to take another look at ILM's de-aging stuff. They've got a de-aged Warwick Davis in the new Willow series, then there's the young Harrison Ford in the Indy trailer. Also would love for you to compare why sometimes it looks great and other times doesn't look as good (like de-aged Anakin in the Kenobi series)

    Great to see you guys do a video on NOPE. I worked on the film and wanted to point out that the long POV shot at 10:36 is fully CG. The infrared technique is described on the DigialMediaWorld and MPC websites (I linked to it in my original comment here but it was removed) so I recommend searching for it if you're curious about it. The technique was also incorporated on Ad Astra.

    The best way to do day for night is to film on a totally overcast day, so there's no directionality to the environment lighting, and no sharp shadows on the ground. Of course you can then add lighting for your foreground to simulate moonlight. Obviously, it can be difficult waiting for the weather to be just right to get a totally overcast day, but if you want the environment to look right, that's what you want to do.

    You guys should take a look at Season 1 Episode 14 of Manifest. Specifically around 6 min 20 sec into the episode. There is a very interesting CGI Wolf in that episode. Season 2 ep 3 also has a pretty bad CGI Gargoyle in it. Honestly some of the CGI in Manifest in general is pretty sketch. Great show, but they definitely didn't give them much of a CGI budget.

    I really want them to review the Piano scene from the 1941 film "The Big Store"
    Something about the arms seems slightly off. I want to believe that it's real, but I have no idea and always suspect that they did some movie magic to comp in the arms playing piano

    so I was rewatching some older movies I had watched in theaters...

  • Geoffrey Thomas

    There's a massive explosion of a tanker on a bridge involving a car chase at the end of the 1996 film, "The Long Kiss Goodnight." In fact, the sequence before the explosion is pretty boss, too. Helicopters, machine guns, great Samuel L. Jackson quotes. The explosion itself looks like really terrific model work, but it's also a Renny Harlin film, so it's a bit bombastic (no pun intended).

    Saw Nope in IMAX and sat a few rows closer than I'd usually prefer. Ended up adding so much to the experience because every time the characters were staring up at the sky, I'd have to raise my head and dart my gaze around the massive screen trying to get a glimpse too. Second favorite cinema experience of all time after Annihilation.

    That Twin Peaks episode is one of the most extraordinary hours of television ever aired, and I think you might want to watch all of it. For fire stunts/effects, check out Taylor Sheridan directing Angelina Jolie as a fire jumper in Those Who Wish Me Dead. Also check out Only the Brave, based on a true story and directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion, Top Gun: Maverick). Josh Brolin plays a legendary firefighter who takes in an unruly protege played by Miles Teller and holy crap it's just Top Gun in a forest. Also check out the Spike Jonze video for the Wax song California, which is just a continuous slow mo shot of a guy on fire running next to a bus for 2:30.

    The breakdown for Nope completely explains to me how they made these scenes feel so damn uncomfortable to watch. It's not like we haven't seen plenty of night scenes in movies before, but I never quite understood what made this one so different when watching it in the cinema. Would be hilarious though if they ended up scrapping a lot of it and it was just good artistry from the people in the BTS lmao

    The nuke in Oppenheimer, the beautiful explosion in black and white, was supposedly NOT CGI!
    Christopher Nolan:"I think recreating the Trinity test [the first nuclear weapon detonation, in New Mexico] without the use of computer graphics was a huge challenge to take on,” Nolan said. “Andrew Jackson - my visual effects supervisor, I got him on board early on - was looking at how we could do a lot of the visual elements of the film practically, from representing quantum dynamics and quantum physics to the Trinity test itself"
    So how do you think it was made?
    Is he saying bullshit, or did you just assume expert cgi where there were none?

  • Galaghan

  • YelloHammer
    YelloHammer Před 2 měsíci +27

    If there's one thing Nope has managed to do, create a level of excitement and terror both brilliantly mixed together, something Jordan Peele has often done in his works. Also, speaking of 1988's Akira, Em doing the iconic bike slide that Kaneda does in the movie isn't the only reference present to the movie. Jean Jacket's destruction mirrors that of Tetsuo, in the way they both expand and mutate, before exploding. But wait, there's more--according to Jordan Peele, the design of Jean Jacket was inspired by the mechs from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Time and again, Peele has turned down offers to direct a live-action adaptation of Akira.

    • Planet o' forts
      Planet o' forts Před 2 měsíci

      @Jason Rhodes Nerd alert ahead:
      The time it takes for the shock wave to reach them is about 6 seconds which is about enough time for it to travel 1.2 miles. The size of the mushroom cloud tells us it is small and more of a 1 kiloton or smaller. You don't evaporate at that distance. The side facing the bomb would began to burn and melt destroying skin and muscle. You may have second or first degree burns from reflection on the other side but you won't be charred.

    • Jason Rhodes

    I love the Twin Peaks Nuke scene. It seems to me the point is to show the absolute horror and destruction it creates on a particle level. It's not just blowing up, it's tearing up reality, ripping apart our dimension allowing 'others' to come through.

  • Dee
    Dee Před 2 měsíci +37

    6:40 the thing that really slays me about this nuke shot is how the character is turned to embers and yet all the vegetation is completely fine until the shockwave hits. It's like the director had a seven-year-old's understanding of nuclear bombs. "Even just the light from the blast can kill you" [but everything inanimate around you is just fine?!] It's just so dumb the more you look at it. Like, this heavy jacket is evaporated off of her back, and yet there are individual blades of grass still standing.

      "but no one ever talks about it anymore"
      Mostly because it's been 30 years, lol

      @Jpettltd yeah true. I was very high energy, But I also thought that Jean Jacket was gunna be a magical hot hair balloon cause of that one shot in the trailer with the flags hanging from the sky.

      @Daniel D literally the first thing that pops up when you google it essentially says what I said: "Whereas practical effects occur physically on a film set, visual effects (VFX) are added during post-production."

      @hogwashsentinel 189.000.000 google search results for "practical visual effects" say that it is a thing though. So your nitpicky semantics nonsense is clearly rejected.

    I just revisited George of the Jungle.
    There's some stuff worth talking about there. I'd love to hear your breakdown of the Elephant pet dog, for example.
    Lots of stunts there too. Bay Bridge rope swing, for example. Apparently Brendan Fraser did the swinghimself. Twice!

    You know what would be good? Having an episode of you guys reacting to real explosions of various types. That way the audience has a reference point when you go back to watching movie explosions.
    I remember watching WW2 footage of bombers in action and thinking how different the explosions looked from Hollywood explosions.

    Lynch is so amazing because he treats every frame of his movies as a still photo which needs to contain the whole story by itself. I feel sorry for the folks who need to work so hard to make that happen but the results speak for themselves

    New thing to do for the show: “The Last Starfighter (1984)”. Anything from that movie would be great to learn more about (I love this movie so much), but specifically the ‘Melting Ice Cream Caves’ scenes would be great to get your thoughts on. Depending on which version you are watching (slightly different movie edits have been released over the decades), that would start at about the 1 hour 6 minute mark.
    If you are wondering what I mean by ‘Melting Ice Cream Caves’, if you watch you’ll instantly think “Ohhhhhh…. yeah. I get it.”
    Such an amazing CGI-heavy movie done more than 38 years ago. I can’t even guess as to how many times I have watched this movie from start to finish. I want to learn more about that one scene, but please don’t only do that one not-so-great scene. It would be such a shame if all the amazing scenes were ignored and only that one scene was focused on, lol.

    For Animators React, please take a look at The Prince of Egypt parting the Red Sea scene! It took a team of ten animators two years to finish and the final product is gorgeous.
    For VFX Artists React, check out the mutts scenes from the first and fourth Hunger Games movies! I’d love to hear you opinion on them!

    Definitely reached a point where I still find these 'react' videos entertaining and informative, but I do want to see the Corridor guys put their money where their mouth is and show us how VFX can really be used as a tool to tell a story in a SINGLE shot. Sorry, but Son of a Dungeon doesn't count, because it can just as easily be nit-picked and criticized - when I watch an episode of SOAD I can immediately see what's animated, and I get it, that's the point, but how about something REALLY wow? Real. Believable. Unquestionable. Something that gives Corridor the right to actually laugh at 'janky' clips with a clear conscience. I challenge Corridor to do a short or even just a single shot that's more substance over style and it has one (just one) mind-blowing, face-melting, "how did they do that?!" VFX shot that should have someone at Weta or ILM perplexed. Then let the fans and industry pros figure out how you guys did it.
    Then show us how you REALLY did it, and how long it took. Blow our minds. Melt our faces.
    Just an idea. Keep up the good work, Corridor 😁

    For Vfx react I'd recommend looking at the Netflix show 1899. There is a specific effect where the characters go thorough a portal that somehow looks really well done in episode 6, 9:10

    A few months ago, you guys reacted to James Lee. I recommend looking at Krugston. He has said he was inspired by James Lee, but has a very unique animation style. He continuously jumps between 2D, 3D, clay, poly, and I kid you not, painting. Yeah, painting animation. He definitely doesn’t have the attention he deserve but it would be cool if you checked him out.

    I would love to see an episode about the South Korean who "sweet home"! I think it's an interesting show to analyse because the special effects depends on what character transforms into a monster.. Also some very cool companies working on I like Legacy Effects, FX studio and Spectral Motion !

    Hey guys! There’s a scene in Starship Troopers that I just can’t figure out- about 22 minutes in Denise Richard’s character leaves on a tube train and it shows Casper Van Dein’s reflection. It’s a tiny detail but the more I think about it the more I can’t figure out how they did it with the effects of the time. I would love you guys to take a look at this neat effect!

    Great to see you react to backdrafts practical fire stunts. Universal studios theme park had a backdraft ride that took you through the sets in this scene. They would lite this stuff on fire while explaining how some of set pieces worked. It had a Jumpscare built in! At the finale they would drop the platform everyone was standing on while the announcer would act like something had gone wrong with the set. It scared me so bad as a 11 year old I picked my dad up and carried him to the exit sign screaming. Alot of the explosions and fire effects you see are more like a reusable flame thrower and are very controllable as far as the size of the blast going off. Along with the reusable ones smaller one time explosives would be installed around to give the sense of chaos to the environment. The sets were built so you could get multiple shots even in these chaotic fire scenes.

    I've suggested Doctor Who's goofy 2005 effects before, but the episode End of the World when the Earth gets roasted by the sun, that shot still really holds up years later. In fact I think that whole episode holds up pretty well considering the budget, the year it was made and the show it was made for.

    The opening shot of the nuke in that Twin Peaks episode was genuinely one of the most amazing moments of television I think I've ever seen? The visuals while Threnody for the Victims of Horoshima was played on top, is probably one of the most visceral things I've ever seen in television? The entirety of season 3 is a masterpiece, I'd highly recommend watching the show if you haven't.

      Considering it's over 32 years old, I'd say it's held up very well for VFX.

    Talking about the Sylvester Stallone shot I am like
    “ dang,“
    I can imagine somebody beating their head against the wall trying to make the shot look better but not knowing how. Plus the frustration of knowing that all of the parts you have been handed are really good.
    for my own work I am a big fan of obscuring the action. The human brain is always trying to interpret what it sees. obscuring good content is much better than sacrificing the quality of the ending result by trying to show it.
