The Avengers scored an Academy (Oscars) Award nomination in the Visual Effects category and now Industrial Light & Magic released The Avengers visual effects video.
The blurb says, “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.”
Cast & crew: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and director Joss Whedon.
The Avengers is third-largest box office hit of all time, earning more than $1.5 billion worldwide. The Avengers 2 is slated to hit theaters in 2015.
