Movies and TV shows are exciting because of their stories and sometimes even their lessons. Excellent (or awkward) visual effects or stunt work are some things that can really make or break a show, which is why the guys at The Corridor Crew love to watch such scenes and analyze them together.
The frivolous YouTube channel has visual effects artists Clint, Wren and Niko (and sometimes other crew members and special guests) discussing CGI and stunt work in their VFX artists respond series and Stuntmen React series. Throughout the series, the veteran visual effects artists and their stunt expert guests cruelly over their favorite movie scenes, the ones that made them crawl, and the ones that were so hard to pull off they were collectively left in awe when they first saw them.
Corridor Crew̵7;s expertise makes it easy for them to discover all kinds of VFX details in programs and movies, and to know how they were achieved or what should have been done to make them a little better. They sometimes also talk about the technical limitations that existed 30 or 40 years ago and how the VFX artists who came before them worked through the mentioned limitations to produce work that is now legendary today.
Corridor Crew’s casual unwritten videos mix humor and experienced insights, which together give you a brief look behind the curtain so you can learn what goes into creating the big scenes that become so iconic. The guys talk about things like what goes into getting a certain character to move as it needs to, or how to get the light from a CGI explosion to reflect on the other elements of the shot without getting too deep into the details. In the same way, their stunt experts explain why a certain scene or movement was so difficult to shoot, or how they broke their leg and twisted a car or did stunt work for a superhero movie.
These series give you a behind-the-scenes look at how many famous scenes are made in popular, foreign and older blockbusters and TV shows like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Deadpool, Pokémon Detective Pikachu, den Star Wars movies, Cats, Studio Ghibli Movies, The Lego movie, Lord of the Rings, Mandalorianen, Pans Labyrinth, Mary Poppins, and more.
Experiencing the comments and insights makes the new films even more exciting and makes it easy for you to discover CGI in the programs you watch from here. It gives you a better appreciation for all the thought and hard work that goes into making these shows so gripping and may even make you wonder how other aspects of film production work.
But these two series are not all there is on the channel! There are other videos where the guys tested their VFX skills, like when they borrowed a $ 20K motion capture suit and turned into Transformers, or superimposed popular Star Wars ships in New York and other cities to show how big they really are. They also have fun away from their computers in other videos where they learned Hollywood stunt driving and how to develop movies manually.
The Corridor Crew guys are young, energetic and funny, and together their personalities give a lot of laughs and funny comments in every video, no matter what it’s about. They even love when fans send in requests for them to watch a particular movie or TV show, and as such, the channel has gained an equally passionate fan base. The guys’ obvious passion for VFX shines through in every video, which makes the sometimes complicated vocabulary and rhetoric that comes with VFX easy to understand, even for those who do not know.
