Alfonso Cuaron’s beautifully shot Gravity is going to get serious awards buzz in 2014 – it's just so visually stunning, it's impossible not to appeal to awards voters – but the folks behind the feature are taking nothing for granted and going out of their way to show us just how much effort went into creating the film.
The latest featurette gives us more glimpses of how the film’s visual FX were created – because sending George Clooney and Sandra Bullock hurtling through space wasn’t as simple as you might have thought.
This new five-minute video features Cuaron, Clooney, Bullock and other people talking about the difficulties of creating a realistic zero-gravity effect throughout the film, going so far as to point out that some in Hollywood felt as though the script was unfilmable.
Undaunted, Cuaron and his team simply invented new technology to get the shots they wanted – and I think we can all agree that he was 100% successful in this regard. If you’re a big fan of seeing behind the scenes, this video will be fascinating. The box contraption used to film Bullock floating through space is incredibly cool all by itself.
