The 2020 VFX Oscar nominations, explained by a VFX artist.

1917, Avengers: Endgame, The Irishman, The Lion King, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are five very different movies nominated for the same award: the 2020 Oscar for Visual Effects. Each movie is a masterpiece of computer generated art, from the Avengers’ time travel suits to Star Wars’ chase scenes to the incredible de-aging effects in The Irishman.
It’s easy to be awed by these effects - or to not even notice them. So we brought in Niko Pueringer, a visual effects artist from the production studio Corridor Digital, to help us break down the visual magic behind each film.

Man I remember when Corridor Crew was a small channel and still called Sam and Niko. Now they're huge and have started a genre of react videos

Why on earth would you record your Premiere screen instead of just compositing your video right xD. And also why leave the top bar of the preview screen in the video...

At the end, Niko lays the smack down on the Oscars, and tells us what we already know: Oscars are worthless. It's just bait to get you to do more work for less money for a chance to get patted on the back by a bunch of people you'd rather not have to sit in a room with.

Get away from Vox, Niko. They are cancer. They will give it to you. I care too much about Corridor to see you infected.

Interesting short analysis, classic Vox style of finishing and feeling like there could have been more. The downside was the aesthetic for the video with the editing suite overlay really detracted from the usual Vox quality and was distracting most of the time.

Vox was evidently unable to find a vfx artist who works in the industry? Maybe someone who has made feature films with a real studio?

I guess our Boys at Corridor have "officially made it". these guys are the best, and so wholesome.
Hey, a channel with a yellow and black letter-on-background icon posted a video called "VFX artists react" with Niko on the thumbnail Brain: it corridor unga
