Mirada Studios posted the following VFX reel to show the craftsmanship required to make monolithic monsters and machines into movie reality. The reel breaks down scenes from Pacific Rim.

Storytelling studio Mirada was the creative and technical force behind the two-minute prologue of Guillermo del Toro’s robots vs. monsters epic, Pacific Rim. Working closely with del Toro, who co-founded Mirada with Pacific Rim DP Guillermo Navarro, director Mathew Cullen and Javier Jimenez, the Mirada team designed, created, shot and edited the key sequence, which included over 80 fast-moving visual effects shots.
