 STEVE EMERSON
VISUAL EFFECTS SUPERVISOR
“The visual effects work we do here at LAIKA is very similar to what
the VFX department would be doing on a big live action superhero film. It’s live action because of the puppets and real objects, sets, etc. to which we apply photo-realistic visual effects. We have actors just as a live-action film would have actors. We shoot those actors on green screen sometimes. The difference
is that our actors happen to be 10 or 12 inches tall as opposed to six feet. And they’re photographed over the course of weeks, one frame at a time, as opposed to capturing an acting performance on a live-action set.”
