I mentioned in a previous post that Disney's live-action 'Beauty and The Beast' was my film of 2017.  Therefore I decided it might be a nice idea to share some information about the CGI and special effects - another reason I love the film.

The Beast was portrayed by Dan Stevens but the physical character needed to be brought to life by 'Digital Domain' - a visual effects company.  Here's a video showing actor Dan and the digital creation.

'Thrillist' have written a great in-depth article about all aspects that needed to be considered when doing this live-action / CGI collaboration.  It's very interesting.  Have a read here:
