The History of Shrinking People in Movies

Jamie Price, the visual effects supervisor for the new film Downsizing, takes a look at the history and evolution of people miniaturization in films, from 1935’s Bride of Frankenstein to modern movies like The Lord of the Rings series and Ant-Man.

Price explains the special effects techniques like forced perspective, compositing, the Schüfftan process, rotoscoping, motion control, motion capture and more.
