Filming Fantastic Beasts - visual effects

The Broadcast Film Critics Assn. announced its film nominees for the 22nd Critics’ Choice Awards last Thursday. Fantastic Beasts has four nominations: Production Design, Costume Design, Hair and Makeup, 
and Visual Effects. (x) Here are a few screenshots from the set and the film posted by Animais Fantásticos ‏@AFEOHBr  These pics demonstrate the use of visual effects.

This is an enjoyable digest of items from the behind-the-scenes Fantastic Beasts books. Eddie’s contribution is my favorite one — and one of the most touching moments of the film for me. It really speaks to his sensitive nature (bespokeredmayne)

“A lot of the creative elements of the film were up to the principal cast. There were small but important ideas, like Eddie Redmayne choosing his character’s wand. And then there are some of the more important details. 

“Redmayne, for example, also came up with the idea of using a spell that turned the wizards’ wands into umbrellas. It’s an elegant visual idea, and it’s key in one of the most beautiful scenes in the film, when Queenie shields Jacob from the rain that would wash away his memories.”
