Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street is a story that’s told almost entirely from the demented point of view of Jordan Belfort, a despicable scumbag of the most entertaining variety imaginable. So it makes sense that there’s a lot of departures from reality hidden in the movie, but this video from Brainstorm Digital, the visual effects firm who did the VFX work in the movie, shows just how many there are.
In case you haven’t been paying attention to the evolution of CGI technology in recent years, it’s gotten to the point where a lot of it is indistinguishable from reality, as the Brainstorm Digital video demonstrates. They say the best special effects are the ones the audience never notices, and that would definitely seem to be true in this case.
You can check out the video showing Brainstorm Digital’s The Wolf of Wall Street handiwork below, and it’s pretty much spoiler-free so you can watch it even if you haven’t seen the movie yet. And for more, head over to Brainstorm Digital’s website here.
