fxpodcast #344 Black Adam with Digital Domain
11.16.22Black Adam is the DC superhero film starring Dwayne Johnson as the dark anti-hero DC Comics character. The film is a spin-off from Shazam! (2019) and the eleventh film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). It was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, and the story centers around Adam, an ancient superhuman who is released from his magic imprisonment by a group of archeologists in order to free the nation of Kahndaq from a vicious crime gang.
In this episode, we speak to Nikos Kalaitzidis, VFX supervisor at Digital Domain about the work they did. Digital Domain primarily worked on Black Adam’s introduction at the Rock of Eternity, as you will hear in the podcast, one of the most complicated shots they did was when Black Adam uses his electricity to melt a mercenary, thus establishing him very much as the anti-hero.
