Face half off, actually, as was the spectacular way Gus Fring left the “Breaking Bad” universe, thanks to Walt’s science knowledge and Tio Salamanca’s bell. Actually, the scene — Gus’s half-missing face, revealed as he steps out of the explosion and straightens his tie — came with help from the special effects team from AMC brethren “The Walking Dead.” It’s much more complicated and technical, but essentially, the look was created by using a shot of Gus’s face with a 3D sculpture of Esposito’s head, digitally melded together on film. It gave viewers the chance to “see into and through Gus’s head in that final reveal. It’s a combination of great makeup and great visual effects,” Vince Gilligan told the New York Times.
