Remember kids, truth is stranger that fiction. 


his smile is most naïve
cheerful and good-natured
and he’s as handome up close as at a distance


“You’re exiting your body and you’re viewing something from an alternative deminsion. So that’s a big moment for us to figure out how we’re going to do that. Testing the astral push moments and in those moments, we’re shifting into high speed. So we’re testing frame rates as well as camera speeds in order to do that.” - Geoffrey Baermann, 2nd unit VFX supervisor

“The astral form is one of the simplest effects that were done and one of the hardest. Because you need to believe that in a way it’s the spirit that sort of comes out of the body. We didn’t want it to look like a ghost, but yet is ghostly.” - Victoria Alonso, executive producer, head of post production and VFX

“The main thing was in the way they can move and interact with the environment. When they fly very fast through the room, they can go through the walls but then cling to the walls. Things are moving when they hit them so it’s not really ghost as we know them.” - Stephane Ceretti, visual effects supervisor  (x)
