You probably didn't realize how much CG animation there is in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind — and not just in the big obvious scenes where stuff is vanishing. This VFX reel for Michel Gondry's masterpiece is an eye-opener.

In particular, this reel shows how a great filmmaker can use CG to help tell a story, instead of just overwhelming you with oceans of Velveeta. These effects, and the reel, were created by Buzz Image, a VFX firm which — true to the state of the industry generally — apparently doesn't exist any more. [via Filmmaker IQ]
