It’s no secret that Brendan Fraser is in the midst of his “Brenaissance” after winning rave reviews for his Oscar-nominated performance as a morbidly obese English teacher Charlie in “The Whale”.

A new video from A24, the studio behind “The Whale”, features a new time-lapse video illustrating just how intensive that process was.

The elaborate prosthetics, makeup and bodysuit that transformed Fraser into his 600-pound character were modelled digitally and then created via 3D printer.
