The Avengers (Assemble): Behind-The-Scenes Visual Effects Showreel

Hot off the news that (MARVEL’S THE) AVENGERS (ASSEMBLE) [delete as appropriate] has earned an Oscar nomination for its visual effects, the lovely geniuses (genii?) at Industrial Light and Magic have posted this delightful video on YouTube to highlight their good work. It’s full of the kind of stuff you wouldn’t have even thought of and features a few all-new stop-motion animated vignettes.

Quoth ILM, “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.”
