Industrial Light and Magic has released a great behind the scenes video for the special effects they worked on for The Avengers. Great special effects still amaze me, and it's exciting to see how much more awesome they're going to get as the technology gets better.
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.
There's a lot of great stuff included in the video, and it shows how much detail and care they put into bringing these effects to life. I'm sure many of you are going to enjoy watching this!
