Two very impressive featurettes have been released by Universal boasting the impressive visual effects of director Joseph Kosinski’s sci-fi thriller, Oblivion.
The first video looks at how the stunning visual effects were created for the films ‘Sky Tower’, and instead of a blue screen, the director shot footage of a real sky, and projected it 360 degrees to give the quite breathtaking visuals. The second featurette shows how the ‘bubbleship’ was built, and it is cool to see practical effects being used like this. Tom Cruise especially looks to be having the time of his life!

The film is produced by Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Barry Levine, Duncan Henderson, Joseph Kosinski and executive produced by Dave Morrison, Jesse Berger.
