New District 9 Photos Compare Original Photography to Final Shot

by Dan Koelsch

A lot of digital work went into this summer’s hit District 9, and while Weta produced many of the physical props and computer generated machines of the film, Image Engine made the aliens, all of which were digital to many people’s surprise. Now, fxguide has new images that show both the before and after shots for the CGI prawns. Here’s an example:




Check out the fxguide site for all the images and more information on Image Engine’s work on the film, like the following tidbit:

Ramping up to a crew of 110, Image Engine completed 311 visual effects shots for District 9. While these shots were predominantly of digital aliens, the studio also developed the mother ship – which looms ominously above the city – digital helicopters, Casspir troop carriers, weapons and various explosions and gore effects. Image Engine and the other effects vendors shared assets where necessary, generally finalling a shot if their main asset was the foreground element.



District 9 is available on DVD, Two-Disc DVD, Blu-ray, and UMD for PSP on December 22nd.
