A Breakdown of the Stunning Visual Effects Used in Marvel’s Superhero Film ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Visual effects company Method Studios has released a video detailing the stunning visual effects work used in the Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy.

Method created several digital environments utilizing full CG elements and dimensional matte painting techniques.

The shots illustrating the origins of the Power Stone within the orb, involve mechanical arms opening the sphere’s complex mechanisms. Method artists replaced the practical arms shot on set which allowed their movement to be much faster and more intricate.

For the final battle, Method Studios created content for the holographic table at Nova Corp command center. The holo table was used to provide an overview on the battle raging above the city and other info graphics.
