For vfx supervisor Roger Guyett, “Star Trek” was “a big show, emphasizing everything from creatures through the modern toolbox of visual effects, an incredibly diverse range of work.” But most of all, he’s proud of the sheer beauty of his team’s work.

“(We were) adding a new level of elegance in using colors and the lens flares and the cinematography of it. Just creating memorable imagery. That’s something I was very excited about.”

The Trek’ bake-off reel is likely to show off the various planets and regions of space in the pic, especially to show how they used color to help orient viewers, as well as the concepts for the future.

“‘Trek’ is an enormous design exercise,” he says. “It’s something you can easily underestimate. I’m extremely proud of the way the movie looks. There’s a level of art there I think is sometimes neglected in our field.”
