Dawn of the Planet of the Apes featured some amazing visual effects. Those monkeys were so realistic it was scary. But that doesn’t happen by magic. There are scores of talented people behind the scenes making it a reality.
Weta Digital has created this amazing behind-the-scenes featurette that highlights all of the CGI work that went into making it feel so natural and real. Andy Serkis is a big factor in why this worked so well too. When you have great CGI with such great acting, you have something really special.
