Studio: Netflix Director: Dan Gilroy
“Velvet Buzzsaw,” a Netflix film which premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, is a satirical thriller set in the contemporary art world scene of Los Angeles, where big money artists and mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce. Method Studios helped transform various high-end paintings and sculptures into instruments of death, attacking art connoisseurs who participate in unethical business dealings.
Throughout production, the Method team collaborated closely with Director Dan Gilroy and VFX Producer David Feinsilber to develop visually unique and stylized effects to convey the story. Using practical Art Basel-inspired pieces created by a team of traditional artists under the direction of Production Designer Jim Bissell as the starting point, Method artists digitally enhanced the artwork in a variety of ways.
