According to visual effects supervisor Loni Peristere
, the scenes of the cave filled with thousands of übervampires were created with various software tools. CG supervisor Andrew Orloff
, says Peristere, wrote "a pretty powerful crowd duplication tool that incorporates motion capture data working with flocking locators on alterable terrain for any number of CG extras you might require. Maya's new toolset lets you pick a square, decide how big that square is, decide how many digital people you want in that square, decide how randomly you want their movements and tell them where to go. It brings together a bound model, motion capture data and Maya's powerful character setups. You can also exchange whether those are sprites or full rez people. In that shot we started with a close-up and ended up with over 50,000 folks." See more
When Buffy has told the Scoobies her plan about going down into the Hellmouth, Willow starts talking about how it's beyond anything she's ever done. As she says this she is looking in Buffy's direction, but as she continues and the camera cuts away, her reflection can be seen in a nearby mirror - she is suddenly looking straight ahead of her and then turns to look in Giles's direction. She is then suddenly looking back in Buffy's direction as the camera cuts back to her. See more
Most people don't use their tongues to say hello. Or I guess they do, but...
The Mutant Enemy logo looks at the camera and growls, then keeps walking. See more
