These days, the magic of moviemaking has become slightly diminished, given that many casual moviegoers know the tricks of the trade, particularly CGI. But even if you think you know everything about green screens and motion capture, you should watch this peek at the work by Industrial Light & Magic on “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” —it’s fascinating for just how much of the movie’s big setpieces were done in post-production.
This three-minute featurette shows the intense digital work that went into creating a believable world for Chris Evans to run, punch and leap through. Many of the film’s highlight reel moments were filmed on the barest sets possible, and filled in with background and texture later. If you ever wondered how Marvel is able to crank out two movie every year, this is why—a great portion of what the audience sees onscreen is completed on computer monitors. Meanwhile, Evans flexes more action chops in this super short “Call Of Duty Online” ad (via Live For Film).
