Unpaid Endorsements

Gareth Edwards who directed Godzilla, Rogue One and Monsters also did an episode of a BBC television series about Atilla The Hun. It has these epic battle scenes with thousands fighting and was made for ~$100,000. Used only 15 extras and then created the battle scenes in Adobe After Effects. In total it had approximately 300 visual effects shots and Gareth told himself he had to finish 1 shot a day. So there is a website called FXPHD where people from Hollywood teach visual effects courses – great resource.

Scene in Rosemary’s Baby, Rosemary realises she is living next door to the Satanist’s and they all shout hail Satan at her in a POV shot – actually a really funny shot and always makes me giggle

Book called Roman, autobiography of Roman Polanski, came out 15 years ago roughly, talks about the allegations made against him but also how they shot Rosemary’s Baby
