Our team created the third act battle sequences that take place on Titan. The work features extensive VFX including bespoke battle FX, an epic environment build, hero suits and weapons, and the portrayal of Marvel’s mightiest villain Thanos.
In accepting the award, Visual Effects Supervisor Matt Aitken recognised the contribution of the many talented artists involved: “Thank you to the HPA for this award, which I accept on behalf of the wonderful team of artists at Weta Digital. And I'd like to extend our thanks to Marvel as well, in particular Kevin Feige and the fabulous Victoria Alonso. We love working with you on these projects, they certainly are challenging but as a result they are very rewarding as well”.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure and Rampage were also in the running for this year’s Visual Effects Award. We are very proud of our crew for all three films and congratulate them on having their work recognised by the HPA.
The Awards honour achievement and artistic excellence by individuals and teams who bring stories to life and outstanding content to audiences around the world.
