Once again many hard working vfx workers were unfortunately excluded from the latest VFX blockbuster hit “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” The film, in its third weekend, has dominated the box office for Warner Brothers and has earned a massive $608M globally. Yet that money is not enough to convince Warner Brothers to include all the names of those who worked to create a land of magic and creatures entirely in CG.
It’s official. Star Trek’s opening weekend Box Office pulled in around $182 million coinciding with the franchise’s 50th anniversary. One of the heaviest Visual Effects films of the summer, it’s no surprise that the VFX community here in London pulled off awe-inspiring visuals for this blockbuster, but artists expecting a bit of starlight and Hollywood spectacle are likely to be disappointed. We’ve heard that two-thirds of the hardworking individuals for this film didn’t get the opportunity to see their name on the big screen.
