GOING GREEN II: GREEN SCREEN SHOTS BEFORE (AND AFTER) VISUAL EFFECTS
Tweet

Going Greenis an ongoing series that looks at shots using green screen to complete their vision.
It is not a matter of picking one over the other, practical effects over digital effects, it never has
been. Don't be be sold on the foundation of a false argument.When they work in concert with
each other, practical effects and digital effects create amazing images, fantastic moments that are
remembered long after the credits rolled. They are both tools that are only as good as the artist
behind them.
I recently watched the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE films leading up the latest entry into the
franchise. Out of all the spectacular moments in the films, and there are many, the bridge attack
in M:I III still stands out as an amazing bit of filmmaking; practical and digital effects working
in concert with each other to sell the moment. Each of the films listed below "sold" the moment
because they understood how when to use both tools. Enjoy.
