Not all movies of the world are dependent on CGI (images generated by computer) to create incredible scenes. The directors and specialists sometimes do miracles that you never would think that would be possible without CGI.
Great.guru decided to make a list of scenes that you could have expected that they were the work of the genius of CGI.
1. Tom Cruise actually climbed the Burj Khalifa for Mission impossible: ghost protocol.
Do you think that the Burj Khalifa (828 metres) is really amazing? What’s more amazing is that Tom Cruise really climbed in the movie Mission impossible: ghost protocol.
“When you’re on the top and a view to the outside, people will think that it is CGI, and not what it is,” said Gregg Smrz, stunt coordinator of the film, the newspaper THE Times.
Well, using a green screen would have been much easier than swinging from the Burj Khalifa at a height of 828 meters.
2. The scene where volcarón cars in Casino Royale created a world record.
Since the entry of Daniel Craig to the world of James Bond during the early 2000’s, the franchise of Bond has set new records, including the biggest explosion on the screen.
One of the first records set was in the first film of Craig starring James Bond, Casino Royale. According to the Guinness World Records, the specialist in doubles, Adam Kirley, who shot 7 rolls of cannon in a single trick, breaking the record for the most number of cannon bullets.
3. The scene of the “catch tray” for Tobey Maguire in the spider-Man
Well, it might not seem amazing, but to catch a tray with all the goods while subject to a girl is not an easy task. Instead of using CGI, the design team of production used glue on the tray to help Tobey to keep both the tray as to MJ (Kirsten Dunst). After several attempts, Tobey was able to do so with success in the decision 156.
4. The scene of the “Café Paris” in Inception (Origin)
Christopher Nolan is known for his awesome movies and the lesser use of CGI. One of these films is the Source and contains a group of practical effects.
A specific scene in the film is the scene of “Cafe Paris”, in which chunks of debris explode one after another in slow motion. For this to work, the team used a series of shots of air cannons while they recorded the scene to 1,500 frames per second using specialized cameras.
5. The dinosaurs in jurassic Park were not CGI
Even 24 years after the release of the film, the special effects in Jurassic Park are still unsurpassed. The dinosaurs in the film were constructed using animatronics, and some guys that were with costumes dinosaur. All this was possible thanks to the efforts of the master of special effects, Stan Winston, winner of an Academy award.
6. Eternal brilliance of a mind without memories appears to be free of CGI.
Jim Carrey tries to get rid of the memories of your wedding in one of the pieces of performance more convincing that one can expect from the comic actor: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Eternal brilliance of a mind without memories). Not only the acting, but the practical use of special effects in the film, is also remarkable.
To create 2 versions of Joel Barish (played by Jim Carrey), a memory, and the other looking at the gift shop, the director Michel Gondry did that Jim ran from one side to another in a scene. A small touch of some quick transitions later and the special effects without CGI is ready to win some hearts.
7. The flip of the 18-wheeler in the dark knight was real
We know that it is not easy to digest the fact that there was no CGI involved in the The Dark Knight (dark Knight), but it is the truth. Nolan and his special effects practical we counselled him to do it again.
When the Batmobile slammed into a garbage truck. Nolan used a miniature-scale set and vehicles to carry out the effect. Even the release of the wheeler 18 wheeler was an actual scene shot on the streets of downtown Chicago using a ram type catapult incorporating a memory to make it turn.
8. The orcs in the lord of The rings
After the recording of The hobbit with a 3D camera to 48 frames per second, Peter Jackson was expecting an overwhelmingly positive response from the public. But viewers still prefer The lord of the añillos. Although the trilogy of the Rings (the lord of The rings) has a lot of CGI, the orcs and other creatures in the film are just makeup and prosthetics and full-body.
9. Reactor arc of Tony Stark
We do not deny the fact that Iron Man is full of computer-generated images, but one of the scenes most remembered of the movie was when Pepper Pots brought the reactor to the arc hood prótesico of Tony. We assume that that was the only scene in the movie where there were not CGI because we all know how much you would like Marvel studios to use CGI. The images behind the scenes revealed that the chest was an accessory and that the greater part of the laboratory of Tony Stark was real.
10. The asteroids in The empire strikes back are just a potato and a shoe
In the Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (The empire contaataca) of the franchise of Star Wars, were used as asteroids, a potato and a shoe. According to the data of the IMDb (database of movies on the internet), one of the team members of SFX threw a shoe because George Lucas asked him to do several repetitions. The asteroid of the potato is the third, and the shoe is the fourth that Has Just passed over to get rid of their pursuers.
Bonus: Nolan planted 500 acres of corn for Interstellar
Christopher Nolan planted 500 acres of corn for the movie Interstellar. After the completion of the filming, he sold the corn and recovered the budget along with a profit.
The idea was copied by Zack Snyder. Snyder had cultivated a couple of acres of corn for the movie Man of Steel (man of steel). Nolan pushed a little more and planted 500 acres of extra corn. On the one hand, uses the images with CGI to create the scenes in space, on the other hand, uses a real farm to plant fields of corn.
