The Wolf of Wall Street is an in-your-face 3-hour assault of a motion picture, but it also has some restrained, seamless visual effects work.  While the blockbuster movies always get attention for their dazzling CGI, Brainstorm Digital has put together an effects reel showcasing the nice touches that go almost completely unnoticed, and showcase Martin Scorsese‘s stunning attention to detail.  The behind-the-scenes footage reveals that something as simple as entering a doorway was completely redone so the exterior could meet the director’s satisfaction.  It’s really quite remarkable.

Hit the jump to check out the video.

    Reminds me of how Fincher uses VFX, particular in Zodiac. Subtle, usually for background and atmosphere, and they’re most effective when you don’t even know they’re there.

    i really like seeing how beautiful special effects can be when you use them as a compliment, and not completely lean on them like so many movies do nowadays.

    Honestly didn’t find these visual effects seamless. I mean, if we’re going to compare to the history of cinema then yes, they certainly were very good. But it was obvious to me they were on a green screen and it did take me out of the film for a minute. Fortunately it was a comedy so that doesn’t really matter.

    That said, to someone else mentioning Fincher using them on Zodiac? I had no idea. The only shot I can think of where it might have been was that scene after the cab murder where Ruffalo is looking up and down the street at night.

      Fincher used a TON of vfx on Zodiac. From the Opening helicoptor shot of a 1960′s era San Francisco, to the digital blood during the first car attack. You mentioned the Ruffalo street lamp scene, but also prior to that shot there’s the overhead scene before the cab driver is attacked on that street. And, lets not forget the Chrysler building under construction.

    Fascinating, but did they have to add the major spoiler at the end?
