The queen's gambit was phenomenally fascinating. If you haven't seen it, it's an orphan in Kentucky learning to play chess from the caretaker at the orphanage. And she's a child prodigy. Chicken Bone VFX's visual effects include their visualizations of chess boards on the ceiling.
VFX Supervisor Arissa Blasingame and VFX Producer John Mangia got to know chess very well when they were working on the 700-plus film recreating the virtual location of Old Las Vegas. During these recordings on the ceiling, LIDAR was scanned to capture precise measurements of the rooms and surroundings. "With LIDAR, we could stay true to DP Steven Meizler's camera movements and recreate them in the effects phase."

"Every time you see the chess on the ceiling or something happens when she mentally moves it with her mind, all of this stuff is based on real movement," explains Blasingame, whose company Chicken Bone FX designed the sequences. "We definitely learned (about the game)." (Source: "The Queen & # 39; s Gambit": How the VFX team took the steps)
