Abstract:


    Sony Pictures Imageworks, under the direction of VFX supervisor Scott Stokdyk, created the majority of the visual effects for Disney’s “Oz the Great and Powerful”.
    As a cinematic prequel to L. Frank Baum’s first book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the film explores the backstory of the wizard character. The goal of the film was to create a beautiful stylized environment for the land of Oz and bring to life computer graphics characters that accompany Oz on his journey, including Finley the monkey, the porcelain China Girl, and various creatures that surprise them along the way.
