5 Amazing Visual Effects from Mad Max: Fury Road

mad-max-hero

“Mad Max: Fury Road” ends a 30-year hiatus in George Miller’s wildly popular post-apocalyptic Mad Max movie series, and if one thing’s obvious after three decades, it’s that visual effects have come a long, long way since 1985.

The movie’s popularity is largely due to its non-stop, breakneck-speed action sequences featuring seamless visual effects that immerse you in the dystopian world of Mad Max.

Here are my five favorite types of visual effects in Fury Road—an amazing cornucopia of “modernized” photographic techniques and cutting-edge 2D and 3D digital effects orchestrated by visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson. If you’re interested in taking a shot at a few of these techniques yourself, I’ve included links to lynda.com courses that can help get you started.
