“Batman v Superman” Cinematographer Explains Heat-Vision Special Effects Shot

Larry Fong, cinematographer on “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, shared via Twitter a behind-the-scenes look at how they filmed Superman’s heat vision sequence in one particular part of that film.

The exchange on Twitter started when a fan posted a screenshot from the film stating, “This shot is art.”

Larry Fong responded with, “I believe I have a behind-the-scene video clip of how we shot this. Interested?”

The conversation continued…

“It’s surprising how simple this was (to film, not to finish). We dollied towards Henry as a bright red light was dialed up. Then the camera moved around and away from him. This provided the basic element for the VFX guys (led by DJ DesJardin) who took over from there and voilà!”

I really liked that scene. It was very comic-booky to how Superman unleashes his heat vision.
