Avengers was the last project I worked on before I chose to leave ILM. Most of midtown New York was recreated digitally by the digimatte department. It was a huge project in terms of logistics, complexity and number of shots that needed to get done. In the end i believe i worked on ca. 60 shots in one way or another. Below is a mosaic of most of them.
The making of New York
Here are some snapshots from one of the biggest and most challenging shots I worked on. The entire background is a 2.5D digimatte environment mixed with lit and shaded 3D assets. Additional damage was added to the fg-building by my colleague Chin Chee Cheah.
