Director Tim Miller’s first feature Deadpool hasn’t just raised
the bar for subversive, fourth-wall-breaking comic book films, it also
pushes the art in terms of visual effects. From completely synthetic
environments for the freeway chase, to a fully CG dialogue-delivering
metallic character in Colossus, to a unique approach to Deadpool’s
facial animation and an unforgettable frozen moment opening title
sequence, the film showcases a raft of impressive tech. We talk to
Miller, overall visual effects supervisor Jonathan Rothbart and VFX
vendors Digital Domain, Atomic Fiction, Blur Studio, Weta Digital, Rodeo
FX, Luma Pictures and Image Engine about just some of these key scenes.
