The Clio Awards announced nominations for 2021 and we are thrilled to report “Avengers Assemble“, a commercial we created in collaboration with Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics, and Marvel Entertainment through RSA films, Los Angeles, and agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty was named to the shortlist in the Film Craft / Visual Effects category. Teaming up once again with director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the ILM team led by visual effects supervisor Jeff White, animation supervisor Scott Benza, visual effects producer Katherine Farrar Bluff, and executive visual effects producer Jeanie King.
The project was completed in record time and features Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, and a cast of hundreds in an action-packed spot. At just over a minute in running time, three-quarters of the spot is fully CG. ILM had last teamed with Vogt-Roberts on the feature Kong: Skull Island for which the ILM team received an Academy Award nomination for visual effects.
