Self/less, the psychological science fiction thriller starring Ryan Reynolds and Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley, will be released in U.S. theaters today.
The film features Kingsley as a terminally ill millionaire who, with the help of a revolutionary – and depraved – medical procedure, transfers his consciousness into the body of a younger man (Reynolds). After a brief, blissful romp in his new body (think YOLO meets Big), he learns that his new existence comes with a complicated and splintered past.
The film’s wide-ranging visual effects were created by Skulley FX, the post-production studio founded by 1998 Digital Media graduate and Third Annual Hall of Fame Inductee Culley Bunker. Culley, alongside a team of visual artists consisting of four additional Full Sail grads, worked on shots that included gunshot ricochets, melting mirrors, flame throwers, a “shedding machine,” and “memory glitches.”
Below is the list of grads who worked with Skulley FX on Self/less :
- Edwin Miller (Computer Animation)
- Ramon Hamilton (Computer Animation)
- Culley Bunker (Digital Media)
