ILM was largely responsible for the design, development and visuals effects for the Quantum Realm sequences in Ant-Man. Inspired by images taken through electron microscopes, the visual effects team created specialized software which would allow artists to procedurally generate subatomic elements which could be visualized infinitely. Providing the sensation that Ant-Man was staying still while everything around him was shiroking was a challenge but in the end we achieved a unique look for the effect.
