We think this is an interesting article in regard to how Tom’s fingers were made to “disappear’ in the final version of Valkyrie from the man who created the effect, Rich Hoover.  Questions have been asked about this in our forum{nl}Below are parts of an article from FX Guide where Rich speaks about this interesting use of digital effects.  Also we have used photographs to illustrate what Rick did.{nl}{nl}fxguide: From a vfx point of view, how did you produce Tom Cruise without hands and fingers?Rich Hoover: We photographed and measured Tom’s hands very carefully. He had a cast made of it for the prosthetics, both of the stump of his right hand, and prosthetic approaches of how to show his missing digits on his left hand. We found that the prosthetics made his fingers look a little fat, and there weren’t any photographic references of those types of injuries that supported any swelling or change in dimension of digits. I ended up trying some greenscreen sleeves on the fingers, and different ways of outlining where the fingers would be missing, but this had about as many negative properties

{nl}”Night at the Museum” director Shawn Levy clues us into how Tom Cruise and Ben Stiller got all revved up to play adult versions of nerdy teen sleuths in ”Hardy Men,” now in fast-track development.{nl}The Hardy Boys book series started way back in the mid-1920s, eventually totaling 190 titles, and the Boys have appeared in multiple TV-show iterations. But now this pair of teenage crime-solvers, who helped pave the way for other adolescent snoops like Nancy Drew, Encyclopedia Brown, and the Scooby-Doo gang, are on track to become big-screen brothers. The Hardy Men, an action comedy starring Ben Stiller and Tom Cruise, was announced on Feb. 12 as being on a fast development track, though without a script as of yet. The movie will revisit the sibling crime-solvers, but as adults who’ve grown very competitive. We caught up with director/producer Shawn Levy
