Despite its blueness Tron Legacy won’t be an Oscar contender for Best Picture or Best Director like Avatar was last year, but one category it may have a shot at is Visual Effects. Digital Domain, the visual effects company founded by James Cameron which has Michael Bay as co-chairman, has posted a ‘Making of’ video for Tron: Legacy which showcases all their amazing work on the movie.
The reel lasts around 8 minutes long and contains quite a few key scenes from the movie, so if you haven’t seen Tron Legacy yet you may want to avoid watching. However if you have seen the movie, enjoy:
I suddenly feel the need to go see it again.
Digital Domain previously won the Best Visual Effects Oscar for Titanic, What Dreams May Come and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and were nominated for Apollo 13, True Lies, I, Robot, so they may have a shot this year with Tron Legacy.
