AMAZING CURIOSITIES behind the “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” Visual Effects!
> Grindelwald to Abernathy Transition:
* The digi doubles were created from an initial scan where the actors had their bodies and heads fully scanned for each character using a photogrammetry style rig with over 174
higher level cameras
to capture every spot. With each scan a bunch of photographic textures were added as a base for color texture reference to be built upon.
Realistic-looking and moving garments in the digital world were created to match the models, approaching clothing from the standpoint of a real life tailor or fashion designer resulting in clothes that looked and felt natural, and to blend seamlessly with ‘real’ shots.
Physical patterns used by the Costume Design Team to make the costumes worn by the actors, were requested, photographed, and recorded in their real world measurements. Also, a large number of photos of the clothes, from all angles and 3D digital scan of the actor fully dressed, were used to gives the right amount of detail.
All characters on the scene had simulations run on their hair, clothing and sometimes skin.
The transformation was created using a full-face rig using the FACS system making possible to film them talking and animated in any way needed, increasing the level of details added to the skin, hair and clothing.
The hair was the hardest part. A program named “Houdini” was used to the complex blending of the roots of their hair, strands and clumping. Each had to be shifted through the transition, as well as two different simulations for each character were made. Each character also had different coloured hair so they had to blend between that too.
> The Grindelwald’s Escape:
All the characters were shot on green screen, and the carriage had 3 rigs to make its movement.
Rain and wind machines, were added to make the stormy environment and help the clothing and hair movement.
Primary rain, secondary rain, fog, lightning, running surface water, drips, mist, all were created in CGI, per shot and per character.
* In some shots, Johnny was attached to suspended wires to prevent him from falling.
“I know… Okay, I know, Antonio… So needy.”
Poor Anthonio… The “needy” chupacabra:
On the initial concept of Grindelwald’s Chupacabra, the fantastic creature was supposed to be orange! But to match the darken movie, the CGI Team requested
if they could change a bit her idea, adding other details and color, changing the bright color to a dark blue/purple with red/white stripes.
Spikes were added all over its body which has six legs, and were based on a Kimono Dragon’s movement. Then, the CGI Team added their own take on how it would move with six legs to bring life to it.
The clients (J.K. Rowling and
David Yates) really liked the final concept of the Chupacabra and how was brought life, with a funny attitude and personality, that can be seen being in the shots with Johnny (Although, in real life Johnny was holding a green object). Also, they liked Antonio so much, that they ended up adding more shots to the movie so that they could have more of him. One of those shots was the shot in the cells where he is muzzled.

Johnny’s looks fits perfectly in a gangster movie…
Johnny provided with music at Shane MacGowan and Victoria Mary’s wedding, today, in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Ps. You can see that Johnny is wearing the same jewelry, shirt and jacket worn at the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Premiere.
At this time, yesterday, I finally went to watch Johnny’s newest movie, and I was holding my breath and contain my emotions while Johnny appears on the big screen.
As we know from before, Johnny opens the movie being the first character to appear while is locked in a cell and prepared to be extradited to Europe, which lead us to his fantastic escape. Since the beginning it takes a little more than 6 minutes to Johnny speak his first line and more than nine minutes later to have a longer speech, but in both scenes we have a glimpse of how cold and devilish he will be throughout the movie.
Johnny’s performance as Grindelwald is something you may have never seen in his past characters. It’s something new and I can’t compare him to any other. As the director David Yates said in an interview, Grindelwald is a “combination of poet, rock star, visionary, and sociopath, beguiling but lethal.” As Johnny, Grindelwald speaks in a low almost seducing voice with words that seems enchanted, but his character has a huge manipulative power above his victims, making you feel that he really is a dangerous wizard.
Johnny made an incredible work in this movie, but makes you want more of him. As far as I remember, Johnny has 10 scenes throughout the movie, but in the beginning takes long minutes to appear. Johnny’s live speech at Comic-Con, this year, is slightly the same in the movie. And let me tell you – WHAT A SPEECH!
It’s a good movie? YES! A must watch! The actors are amazing, the soundtrack, special effects, the audio… Perfect! The movie does have a magical aura with plot twists and surprises that makes you think in a lot of theories, but kinda makes you feel that something is missing. The “Crimes of Grindelwald”, as the movie title says, isn’t fully shown, making the movie, so as the first, more like an introduction for what we may have in the future. Also as said, this movie is much darker than the previous one, with slightly changes in the characters behaviors. It’s serious, quiet dramatic with funny scenes happening here and there, but in the end makes you leave the theater with a mix of emotions: You feel happiness, sorrow, love, anxiety to know what will happen in the next movie, and even makes you wonder if you would ever pick Grindelwald side. (I was so mesmerized that I only could take one photo of the screen, while Grindelwald and Dumbledore faces showed on the credits)
As usual in trailers, almost 80% of the movie was shown in the trailers and TV Spots released… Even the ending scene! Also, A LOT OF SCENES was not shown in the movie. As the DVD was already set to be released next March, maybe we can watch some them.
If you haven’t seen the movie, GO FOR IT! I’d give a 8,5.
It’s a must watch!!!
