‘The Jungle Book’ might bag the ‘Best Visual Effects Oscar’

The film, which has an Academy Award nomination for best visual effects, used Los Angeles sound stages to shoot the two-hour film, crafting a new approach to film-making. Shooting the whole thing on blue screen, Favreau and visual effects (VFX) supervisor Rob Legato hired more than 800 computer graphics artists from The Moving Picture Company (MPC) to work for a year in creating 54 different animal species. The movie is competing for the Oscar with the likes of Marvel's Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but is the bookies' favourite to win with 1-3 odds.
