FXGuide – The Many Faces of Maleficent

11.02.15

In the new Disney film Maleficent, a once-good fairy becomes the ‘Mistress of All Evil’, and curses the infant Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty). The Robert Stromberg-directed film crosses between the human and ‘faerie’ worlds and employed complex facial capture and animation work, along with detailed digital characters and environments. Overall visual effects supervisor Carey Villegas recruited Digital Domain and MPC to complete the lion’s share of the effects work, assisted by Method Studios, The Senate and an in-house team. The Third Floor delivered previs and postvis for the film.
