ILM Avengers Visual Effects Reel

For your Consideration Academy

With the recent Academy Award nomination for The Avengers, ILM has released a visual effects reel of the film on YouTube. They had this to say in a recent press release.”

“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.

 Just watched this earlier today and it is cool as hell. Learning some of this in school but how they create the digital backdrops are amazing and how they layer the various effects once they are created is incredible. Worthy of the nod for sure. Looking forward to part 2.

That was incredibly cool.  I always love watching these behind-the-scenes things.  It's amazing what they do to get these scenes to work.

No "best screenplay" nod for Avengers is CRAP!  While it is not the type of film that usually gets nominated for Best Picture or Actor awards (and maybe rightly so), Joss Whedon absofuckinglutely deserved a nomination (maybe not the award) for the script to Avengers.  What he managed to do; blend 5 franchise characters into a single coherent story while still giving each character their time to shine was an amazing feat of filmaking even if it was a tentpole movie.  Just another example of the academy being stuck up it's own ass.

Spectacular!!!  On a sidenote, I noticed that they seemed to have paired down Thor's strength somewhat.  In the comics he's supposed to be nearly as strong as Hulk when he's not angry.
