Behind the Stunning FX of Benjamin Button. (Updated & Bumped)

(Note: Originally posted 1/5/09 - bumped to add video)

While I haven't had a chance to toss up the mini-review of "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" yet - Bottom Line: 8/10, see it - I didn't want to wait to share this fascinating tech-speak-heavy article about how the special effects were done that created the titular character. However, if you haven't seen the film yet, DO NOT READ THIS or look at the pictures because it will blow the surprise. See the movie, THEN read the article.


UPDATE: The film quite rightly won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects and this talk from shows in a fast-moving 18 minutes some of how they did it. Enjoy.
