Synopsis of activity
Our biggest show to date, and continuing our relationship with Marvel Studios.
No show that features so many of Marvels most popular characters is ever going to be a small affair, and with so many characters requiring full CG builds, Lidar was always going to be a major consideration in the VFX pipeline for Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
As the sole lidar provider on the show, our first concern is always to get a full understanding of the show. The who, what & where is always the first question I ask when planning a shoot, regardless of the shows size. But as I am sure you can imagine, this show had a lot more “who, what & where” than any previous show too date.
The schedule alone would see us scanning in South Africa, South Korea, Italy and the UK all at the same time. And each location present its own unique set of challenges. However, due to Motion Associates experience on shows of a similar size, all of these challenges were met head on.
Looking back at the shows reports, you can see exactly why we were chosen to provide the Lidar. The stats are mind boggling.
Motion Associates Scanned a total of 124 sets and locations and a staggering 193 vehicles, ranging from small mini cars to huge military tanks. And of course, all this data was captured, processed and delivered.
