Industrial Light and Magic is hoping to win the lone Oscar nod to The Avengers for their work on The Avengers visual effects and has released a special effects reel from the movie to woo Oscar voters.
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.
Fans that have already bought The Avengers Box set might be a bit miffed that this video wasn’t included in the behind the scenes features. The video is a great look at the remarkable work done on the film.
