We are proud to present this video Behind the Scenes And Visual Effects of The Avengers. This 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.
