This film so needs, and deserves, an fx commentary.

First Post :)

This film is number 2 for highest gross of all time. I think Davy Jones can be considered one of the best CG characters of all time thus far. Not much for a first post but damn, what a great film for effects lol.

...any news on PotC 3 trailer?
We have the news that he will go out soon... the film is in post-production, the production finished on January 15.

Hey people ! The dvd of POTC 2 finally it has arrived also in Italy !! Spectacular audio video performance ! The 2 disc special edition is phenomenal, good extra bonus !

I have received it on January 17 ! FINALLY ! :D
There are some deleted Davy Jones shots on the featurette about the character which, like all the other work on him is excellent.
Yes it's true !!!!!! Maybe we can hope for an EXTENDED version ? :roll:

Davey Jones is the main effect and it is brilliant, the best character animation yet done. Totally photoreal to a degree I have not seen before.......

Davey Jones still impresses me. I'm always amazed at how "there in the shot" he looks.

Agreed, I still think Jones is the most realistic cg character yet put on film. The best animated aswell, who needs facial capture technology when animators can reference a performance this well?

I guess seeing as these boards went down before the oscar win for Pirates 2 we should offer a belated congrats to ILM ?

i agree about jones. curious that the facial expressions of this carachter still look more fluid and natural than the Na'vis in Avatar. Btw, would be nice to open topics about the major ILM films wich came out in the last three years, like transformers 1 and 2, star trek, iron man 1 and 2, to see what people here think about the work in these movies.

Considering that the last time I debugged or tried to write a program, it was in DOS and for a labelprinting routine used with 5.25" floppies, there's a fairly good chance my help would be valueless.

Geezus, that's 25 years ago! Watched WRATH OF KHAN the other night, and now I REALLY know what Kirk meant when he says he feels old and worn-out.

Side note: covering PACIFIC RIM for HD VIDEO PRO and LONE RANGER for ICG, so there's a decent chance I'll get to talk with Knoll again, and/or Tim Alexander.

If you talk with Alexander, ask him some stuff about that V-Ray renderer they're using for the foliage on TLR. Amazing stuff(judging from the trailers. Yeah, I know....trailers).

Manuel pinned it to the top. This, the ILM's Next, and General Movie Thread are all pinned. So they just stay up.

Because as you can tell, it's still clearly a highly-talked-about and relevant topic. ;)

But yeah, I've been meaning to post a similar question for literal years. :lol:
