The best visual effects are the ones that go unnoticed. On WANDAVISION, the VFX studio Monsters Aliens Robots Zombies (MARZ) was responsible for creating the photoreal VFX behind one of Marvel’s most iconic characters – a cape-clad human-like red android with the power of flight and a yellow gem embedded in his forehead. The cape. The smooth face panels. The comedic expressions. The makeup, tracking markers, and green screens. MARZ VFX Supervisor Ryan Freer will break down the challenges and techniques behind perfecting Vision as he passes from decade to decade on Marvel’s first Disney+ series.
Look forward to no less than three presentations on the monster smash that is bringing people back into cinemas all around the world:
MPC Film’s VFX team will pull back the curtain on the visual effects and animation work behind one of its most monstrously epic scenes. MPC VFX Supervisor Pier Lefebvre-Cleroux, Animation Supervisor Michael Langford and Lead Animator Lucas Nunes will reveal the creative and technical challenges behind the VFX and Animation of the next chapter in the monsterverse.
Scanline VFX presents “Creating a monster mash on the ocean for Godzilla vs. Kong”, where VFX Supervisor Bryan Hirota takes you through some of Scanline's visual effects work on this epic. Bryan will walk you through the design and creation process for Kong, highlighting developments in their creature pipeline that enabled Scanline to bring him to life and the range of emotional states he cycles through. Bryan will also discuss how Scanline created the ocean battle between Godzilla and Kong and the sheer amount of fx and destruction simulation work that went into the sequence, all while taking the creatures’ scale in and on the water into account.
The third presentation on GODZILLA VS. KONG will be by Weta Digital. Details are yet to be announced, please check our website regularly.
