Expendables Follow-Up

Tuesday night’s Expendables presentation saw a good turnout.

Wes Caefer VFX Supervisor and Greg Nelson Supervising Digital Artist on The Expendables discuss the finer points of designing bullet proof glass bullet hits during their talk.

After an introduction by Scott Coulter, Executive Producer at Worldwide FX, Wes Caefer and Greg Nelson (VFX Supervisor and Supervising Digital Artist respectively) showed breakdowns and explained the technical and practical considerations of some of the effects shots in The Expendables as well as sharing some anecdotes from during production.  While doing so, the two accepted questions from the audience on the particulars of how the shots were produced, why certain artistic decisions were made, and general industry queries.

We would like to thank Mr Coulter, Mr Caefer, Mr Nelson and the Worldwide FX team for taking the time to come speak at LSU Shreveport.  The presentation was both informative and entertaining and we look forward to hearing from them again in the future.
