Sony Pictures Imageworks, lead by VFX Supervisor Chris Waegner deliver 400+ CG shots. One of the highlights of this work was bringing to life the new character “Pawny”, who teams up with the MIB agents. Imageworks launched into modelling Pawny after consulting production concept art. To bring the character to life, the team delved deep into Pawny’s backstory, coming up with the idea that he’s an intergalactic assassin and weapons designer. Though this backstory is never seen on screen, it helps the animators to establish a frame of reference and a more believable character.
