How Did The Invisible Man Pull Off Those Crazy Action Scenes? Star Won’t Say (LRM Exclusive)

Greetings, readers! @Indy_Filmmaker here! I love a movie that makes you wonder how they pulled different things off. Upgrade, directed by  Leigh Whannell, was one of those films. It had a motion-controlled camera, effects, and action that was both entertaining and fascinating. Recently I had the chance to talk about Whannell’s new film, The Invisible Man with one of the stars, Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

Let’s be real, invisibility is something that’s been tackled in cinemas for decades. I mean, just look at how old the original The Invisible Man movie is. As such, I didn’t think much about the visual effects in the film. All I wanted to know from Jackson-Cohen is if his role required him to actually be on set on those invisible days. His response was a bit surprising.

“Yeah. We’ve tried to kind of not say how we did it, how a lot of that stuff was done, but I was very much there for a lot of it.”

Well, s**t, now I have to know. Did the production use new technology? With the recently revealed, groundbreaking virtual production technology used to help craft The Mandalorian, it’s clear we are in a new renaissance of digital film production. 

But does that really apply to this movie? For the life of me, I can’t remember anything in The Invisible Man that seemed new or different in regards to the digital effects, but The Mandalorian proved that even though you might not notice it, that doesn’t mean it isn’t something new being utilized. I guess we will have to wait until they reveal it to the world to find out.
