John D. showed this to me, and it’s worth sharing. Say what you want about Pacific Rim – go on, it’s okay – but you have to admit, the giant Jaegers (mech) and Kaijus were fairly awesome. This was the first film that made me think two very cool, live-action adaptations were now possible: a Mechwarrior film, and a Robotech film.
In the video below, we see how the FX for both Jaegers and Kaijus were put together. The layers and detail is just awesome. Check it out after the jump.
What can be done with special FX today is mind blowing. What do you think?
