Black Swan

This weekend I saw so many people dressed as black swan which made me think about the effects that were used to transform Natalie Portman into the black swan. In the film, there are scenes where we see feathers coming out of her skin. And of course the part when her arms become full feathered wings. I did some searching around and found that there were so many more effects that went into the making of this movie than one would have imagined. For instance, there are a few times in the film when Natalie Portman's head was composited onto another dancers body to make it look like she did all the dancing.

Here is a video of visual effects supervisor, Dan Schrecker, discussing the effects in the film.
