IRISHMAN VFX Featurette Reveals ILM’s De-Aging Technology (VIDEO)

Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman is among the year’s big Oscar heavyweights, having just scored 10 Academy Award nominations including Best Picture.

One of the categories it’s a contender in (and favored to win) is Best Visual Effects, for the groundbreaking digital de-aging by Industrial Light & Magic.

In this extended 13-minute featurette, Scorsese and his artist-technicians showcase the all-new technology that they developed for this mob epic that spans over fifty years, utilizing senior actors Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci all the way through.

(Warning: there are a couple of brief moments of strong language from the film heard here.)

The Irishman is currently streaming on Netflix.
