Disney's Cruella VFX Breakdown Released

MPC Film showed how some of the popular scenes of the movie were made.

Moving Picture Company (MPC) broke down the VFX behind Disney's Cruella. The video shows how the popular scenes and gowns from the movie were made, as well as how the team worked with light, color, and the models of dogs. Since the movie is set in the 70s, the VFX team had to also erase and modify some buildings and the city itself.

Production VFX Supervisor Max Wood also explained some of the scenes' creation, such as the one where Cruella first shows up as the character we all know. Cruella burns a paper cloak she’s wearing to reveal a beautiful red dress underneath.

Wood shared with Collider, "The three shots were first filmed with Cruella, Emma Stone, wearing the red dress. Then, after a hair, make-up, and costume change, she repeated the action in the white hooded cape for all three shots. We knew that the cape would be CG but these takes gave the Visual Effects team a perfect reference of how the cape would move and how the shiny fabric would look under the on-set lighting."

Released in 2021, Cruella shows the story of Estella, who wants to become famous in the fashion world and whom we will later know as Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians. The movie has a 7.4 rating on IMDb and 74% – on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie owes its visual effects to MPC – a visual effects, CGI, animation, and motion design company behind several well-known movies, such as 1917, The Jungle Book, and The Life of Pi.
