ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) released for us a treat on the effects they did for The Avengers, which includes the transformation of Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) into the Hulk, the Hulk’s facial expressions, the final battle scene, as well as the delightful beatdown of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) by the “green, rage monster.”
We are proud to present this video which showcases some of ILM’s Oscar nominated effects work for the 2012 hit film, Marvel’s The Avengers. This reel represents a small fraction of the work created by over 200 ILM artists, scientists, and engineers backed up by a world class production team.
The stop motion animations which open and close the reel were done the old fashioned way – by hand, one frame at a time. They were crafted by ILM’s stop motion guru, Erik Dillinger specifically for this reel.
I did like the stop motion animation as well. Adds a nice personal touch to the video.
