This featurette makes the case for Gravity to win the Oscar for Visual Effects

We sometimes take for granted what visual effects artists do. Last year we got to see in depth looks at the massive amount of CGI work that went into films like THE AVENGERS and LIFE OF PI and, while impressive, they were worlds created out of nothing to achieve the scene. Sometimes, it is the little things that make all the difference.

When we see what James Cameron had to do to make AVATAR and achieve the great 3D elements, it should come as no surprise how much detail went into GRAVITY. This featurette from FX house Prime Focus World shows what they had to do for a scene featuring Sandra Bullock inside her craft. Now, this is not the trailer scenes of the space station being destroyed or even a shot in space at all, but the amount of detail needed for the breath effects, the floating objects, and the depth needed to achieve the 3D are astounding. Plus, how much of this did we even discern as 3D in the movie?

GRAVITY is going to be a major nominee at the Oscars this year. While I hope Best Picture and Best Director are on the docket, I would assume Visual Effects are one of their top chances at guaranteed awards.

if anything It should get the Visual Effects award. but if its nominated for best picture, I'll be happy. This film turned out to be my favorite film of the year. All the films i was excited for this year didn't live up to my expectations, while Gravity turned out better than I was expecting.

Must Win!

This movie not only should win the Oscar it must win because of how seamlessly the VFX were incorporated into the film. I also feel like a complete moron after watching that because I realize there are people operating on a completely different level intellectually from where I am.

I really think it should win. Gravity reminded me of Life of Pi in many ways and the Academy gravitates (hee) towards films that use visual effects as an integral part of the storytelling, as with Hugo, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Inception. Gravity definitely falls into that category. It's been said that it's just about the only movie set in space that actually feels that it was shot on location.
