Synopsis DNEG was thrilled to reunite with director Denis Villeneuve to help deliver this remarkable science fiction epic. Led by Production VFX Supervisor Paul Lambert, alongside DNEG VFX Supervisors Tristan Myles and Brian Connor, our team contributed to 28 sequences and nearly 1,200 VFX shots of the film’s 1,700 total. Collaborating closely with the special effects (SFX) team on-set, DNEG's visual effects crew ensured that all post-production work remained as believable as possible. Each VFX element was designed to heighten the photorealism of Villeneuve’s immersive vision. Massive and meticulously detailed FX simulations, sweeping environments, full-CG vehicles and creatures all helped to bring Dune’s dystopian atmosphere to life on-screen.
