Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer & Andy Wachowski for ‘Cloud Atlas’

Eye on the Oscars: The Director

To tell six interwoven stories spanning 500 years and multiple locations (from the South Pacific in 1849 to Hawaii, 2346) with cast members playing multiple roles in a variety of genres, the three directors ran parallel productions in different countries and together coordinated complex visual effects overseen by Dan Glass. Working closely with the makeup and costume crews and a dozen vfx vendors, including companies in Germany, Britain and the U.S., the team orchestrated more than 1,000 visually stunning shots.
