'The Great Gatsby'
Animal Logic, one of seven visual effects teams behind Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," has unveiled a before-and-after VFX reel that breaks down the creation of some of the film's splashiest sequences. VFX supervisor Chris Godfrey recently posted this dazzling reel on Vimeo.

In the clip, you can see how Animal Logic -- which also did effects for Luhrmann's lavish epic "Australia" (2008) -- constructed opulent scenes such as Nick Carraway's (Tobey Maguire) drunken carousal with Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton) and Jay Gatsby's (Leonardo DiCaprio) jaunty drive through the streets of 1920s New York. It's amazing how much of "Gatsby" was shot in front of a green screen. The film arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray August 27.
