Remember watching sci-fi shows from the 90s and having to bear those cheesy special effects? Well, Brainstorm Digital — the team responsible for the VFX in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire — have certainly made the line between reality and special effects much finer. The Emmy award-winning group has released a video breaking down the layers of effects that were used in the second season. What really blew my mind was how seamless the details looked on actor Jack Huston’s face. If I hadn’t known any better, I’d have assumed that Huston spent hours every day on set with make-up artists. The future of television effects sure looks promising.
