Digital effects made with computer power opened a whole new world as to what movies can be. But knowing, or just feeling, that the latest action film was whipped up by digital effects companies instead of actors on a set leaves us feeling a bit cynical about the entire entertainment industry. Or does it? TIFF Originals lays out the evidence. In certain movies, digital effects leave us with a bad taste in our mouths, while others sell it so well we don’t care. They break down the making of Mad Max: Fury Road as the main example. People loved the practical effects, the real vehicles, the stunt men risking their lives, and the stars who went through hell to make the movie real. However, every scene in the film was enhanced with digital effects. It appears that the difference may be the characters. We know when real people are doing real things, it makes the movie seem more real. -via Kottke
