There’s a fairly detailed article on CGSociety about the visual effects in AvP Requiem. They interviewed the Strause Brothers as well two crew members.
“Even so, the film has around 460 visual effects shots. In addition to adding digital characters in post, Hydraulx created the interior of the predator’s ship, wiped out a city with a nuclear blast, colorized and augmented predator POV shots filmed on an infrared thermal camera, added blood and gore, painted the Rocky Mountains into backgrounds shot in Vancouver, melted a kid’s face with acid, and sent a space ship crashing through a forest like a meteor in the beginning of the film. “Those were huge CG shots,” says Straus of the latter.”
It’s quite interesting. The two crew member interviews are with compositer, Laura Sevilla and animation supervisor Josh Cordes. He talks a little about doing previs on location. Thanks to Peter Moore for the news.
