How The Irishman Changed VFX
So what they did here was pretty amazing considering how motion capture is typically done. If you aren’t aware of how it’s traditionally done you should take a quick look at the motion capture video for A Christmas Carol. Considering that Scorsese only wants the best performance by his actors you can see how this method could be distracting.
Only someone like a Scorsese could say, “I’m not doing it your way. Make something for me,” and an ILM is like, “Well…Ok.”
