Priest: not your average vampire movie

Director Scott Charles Stewart’s Priest envisions an alternative post-apocalyptic world pitting man against vampire, and spiritual warriors helping to win the war. The effects in the film range from the vampires to whole cities and towns, a baron wasteland and a train battle sequence. We take a look at just some of the 750 effects shots.

Stewart looked to his former Orphanage colleague Jonathan Rothbart as visual effects supervisor, Jenny Fulle as visual effects producer, makeup artists at KNB Effects Group, and a host of visual effects facilities to bring the Screen Gems film to life. These included Tippett Studio, Spin VFX, Svengali FX, Spy Post, The Senate, Kerner Optical, Iloura, Gradient Effects, The Base Studio and Zoic Studios.
