Do you ever go to see and movie and it's over blown with CGI, making the movie look soulless and weird. Many of us think back on our favorite practical special effects and say, "This looks way better!" In this video from RocketJump Film School, Freddy Wong goes over why CGI is not bad, but bad CGI is bad. I'll let him explain.
The video has some remarkable examples of flawless CGI that I never even noticed. Some of my favorite examples are the Iron Man suit, the set of Gravity, and Benjamin Button's face. I love that this video came from Freddy Wong and RocketJump, they have been doing low cost CGI for years in their YouTube videos and more recent web series (Video Game High School, Dimension 404, RocketJump the Show). So next time you see bad CGI, remember it's just that, bad.
