The Stranger Things VFX artist calls Netflix after claiming that Vecna ​​has no CGI

Stranger Things Season 4 intends to prepare things for the upcoming finale of the hit Netflix series. Season 4 has divulged so much new information about the creation of Upside Down, how the creatures were born from it, and the creation of the Mind-Flayer. More importantly, the show also introduced the menacing Vecna, which happens to be the king and root of the Upside Down. Thanks to the artists VFX and SFX, for making it possible to make Vecna ​​as creepy as possible. Sadly, in a recent post, Netflix didn’t recognize the talented creatives who brought Vecna ​​to life.

In a now-deleted post, Netflix Geeked paid homage to Vecna’s hideous appearance, also claiming that the villain was created entirely with practical effects by a team of extremely talented individuals. The caption wrote: “It is not CGI: to apply the practical aspect of the whole body of Vecna, also a team of four people between 6 and 7 hours a day to apply the transformation of the whole body in Unknown things 4. “

Stranger Things Season 4 Visual effects artist Matthew McDonald totally rejects the claim, clarifying that CGI was “absolutely” used to create Vecna. According to him, this statement detracts from all the hard work visual effects artists had to endure just to make Vecna ​​as terrifying as possible.

In a separate tweet, McDonald praises everyone behind Vecna’s creation. The visual effects artist closes the statement by saying no craft should be knocked down and made it clear that the shooting process was completely collaborative.

Based on Vecna’s appearance in the final edit, it’s highly unlikely the villain was created entirely with practical effects. Considering that Vecna ​​has movable tentacles around her body that crawl around, the visual effects artists were certainly critical in making sure the villain looked real but also chilling.

Now that Netflix Geeked has deleted the tweet, it’s safe to assume it was just an honest mistake. However, every creative and director should reflect on this oversight. Not everyone gets the recognition they deserve in this type of industry, and belittling one’s work is probably too much for creatives to handle.

All episodes of Stranger Things Season 4 are now available to stream on Netflix.
