Cool Videos: Creating the tsunami in Hereafter

Feb. 16, 2011by:

I was not much of a fan of HEREAFTER as a movie. To me, it represents the worst of Eastwood who, frankly, gets cut a lot of slack by the Hollywood community. I mean his last really good movie was, what?, A PERFECT WORLD (maybe I'll include MYSTIC RIVER in there if I'm being generous)? And with that, HEREAFTER was able to snag an Oscar nomination for Best Visual Effects though I think we can all agree that what Edgar Wright and his crew were able to achieve on SCOTT PILGRIM far surpasses what Eastwood put into HEREAFTER.

All this said, I'm always interested at how big special effects scenes are created and while I didn't feel the big tsunami sequence in HEREAFTER deserved a nomination over a film full of FX like SCOTT PILGRIM, I'm still fascinated by how it was put together. To help promote their nomination, we have a look at exactly how that scene and other aspects of HEREAFTER were created with visual effects. Check it out below.

Really tought to an actor now huh?

I always enjoy how the effects are done. The only thing that depresses me is that where's the performance from actors when there is nothing to be the least bit afraid of? I'm not saying it should be dangerous for them, but c'mon, you need a little fear to get a true performance!

the only good sfx in the movie is the one that makes people believe it's a good movie! SCOTT PILGRIM ? HOW ABOUT TRON LEGACY... The movie IS a Special Effect and SHOULD HAVE BEEN NOMINATED !

I'll probably only watch the movie for that opening scene.

Cool stuff, though didn't they find it kinda silly that they had to add the woman's facial bruising and the kid's tear in post?

I guess they wanted the kid's tear to roll down his face perfectly. But really the bruising? Was it an oversight on set?

These are the things I'd like to know about why those decisions were made.

Firstly, that is borderline hillariously innapropiate backing music considering the context of the scene.

The Oscars always manage to screw up, it's a shame for every Colin Firth or Christian Bale nomination we have something like this.
