The Suicide Squad: James Gunn talks about using practical effects


James Gunn, director of the next The suicide squad, recently took to Twitter explaining some details behind the making of the long-awaited DC movie. In particular, he talked about the reasons why he often preferred the use of practical effects over CGI. These are his words:

CGI is important, but I've used practical effects as much as possible with The Suicide Squad, including the biggest and most beautiful sets I've ever seen by Beth Mickle, real settings, real costumes by Judianna Makovsky, fireworks effects by Dan Sudick , Legacy prosthetics and much more.



However, the director stressed that this does not mean he is against the CGI, which he still considers spectacular and necessary:

I will always be grateful to the visual effects artists who have worked on my films. It's just a matter of not relying on post-production for the work that should be done in production.

Recall that The Suicide Squad will arrive in theaters on August 6, 2021.

CGI's important. But I used practical effects whenever possible with #TheSuicideSquad - including the biggest, most beautiful sets I've ever seen by Beth Mickle, real locations, real costumes by Judianna Makovsky, pyrotechnics by Dan Sudick, prosthetic effects by Legacy & more. https://t.co/yWampiXs0l

The cost difference depends partly on what you're doing and how good the work is. Cheap practical is cheaper than cheap CGI but cheap CGI could be cheaper than high quality practical. And you just can't do a full-size practical, say, Mothra. https://t.co/k0dgi8V7hZ

Me too. I hope to God I'm not coming off as negative about CG which can be beautiful & spectacular & necessary; I'm forever grateful to the VFX artists who have worked on my films. This is just about not relying on post production to do the work that should be done in production. https://t.co/rpLlJIjY3t
