Framestore reunited with Marvel Studios to deliver the climactic final act of Thor: Ragnarok, producing 459 shots of heavy-duty VFX and a host of fully-CG characters. Framestore team constructed an entirely CG Asgard environment containing over 9,000 buildings, mostly laid out by hand. Ben Loch, CG Supervisor lead his team for an entirely CG Asgard environment.

Framestore also created The Incredible Hulk in the leadership of VFX Supervisor Alexis Wajsbrot. Animators brought Hulk to life through keyframe animation. For Hulk’s facial performance, the artists used the blend shapes supplied from past films, enhanced by dynamic simulations. A collaboration with Marvel’s ‘Hulk specialist’, concept artist Ryan Meinerding, helped to inform the subtleties of his facial expressions. ‘We actually redesigned our shot-sculpt pipeline in order to have maximum control and to be able to be very reactive to this feedback’, adds Wajsbrot.
