From director Joe Wright comes this lush, musical retelling of the timeless tale of Cyrano de Bergerac. Set against a baroque cityscape, self-conscious wordsmith Cyrano helps young Christian to win the heart of Roxanne, who Cyrano secretly loves. Cyrano has been nominated for Outstanding British Film in the 2022 BAFTA film awards.
This lush production includes around 100 invisible visual effects, which range from environments and set extensions to retimes, CG blood, swords, fires, clean-ups and an action-packed, fast-paced long-shot, which sees Cyrano single-handedly besting a mob of attackers.
Visual Effects Supervisor for the production (and Cinesite) was Artemis Oikonomopoulou. The film is produced by Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title, along with Guy Heeley.
