The Great Gatsby - Breakdown

The most visually stunning movie that you probably have not seen finally has a video showing off SOME of the work that went into this.  This is one of those rare movies that  you have to see in theaters in 3d.  My list of 3d must see in theaters films is very short and goes Avatar, Dredd 3d and The Great Gatsby.

    Whoa. They use bluescreen on 0:18, where the rider also has blueish shirt. Must've been a pain to key out!!! bushes and vegetation disables the ability to use greenscreen on that shot. I wonder why they chose that color for the shirt.

    Saw this video when it went up a month ago and it is indeed ridiculously impressive work. Though I can't help but feel that there's an awful lot of unnecessary work in there as well. It really is very indulgent - which I suppose suits the story!
    Masqutti - given the amount of foliage and grass in the shot, dealing with the guy's shirt would have been easier than dealing with everything else, if they'd used greenscreen.
    Some of the most impressive work is probably the car. It has full reflections and shadows of the surroundings, so they either mapped those onto the real car, or completely replaced the car with a CG version. Or a bit of both.
