I just had my mind blown, thanks to effects house studioADI.
The company, who releases all sorts of awesome never-before-seen footage from behind the scenes of older genre films, has shared an astounding piece of work from Mike Nichols’ 1994 Wolf, which starred Jack Nicholson and Michelle Pfeiffer.
“At ADI we pride ourselves on our realistic eye mechanisms. Even at their most basic they can get pretty complex,” says ADI. “Director Mike Nichols wanted a sustained close-up on a wolf’s eyes for the movie WOLF. Here’s how we approached the challenge: pupil dilation.”
Below is the video featuring said dialation, which is literally mind blowing.
