Digital Domain filled the big screen with giants, humanoid in shape, but distinctly earthy in their appearance. Artists created eight 20-24-foot-tall computer-generated hero giants (including a two-headed lead character) a hundred background giants, various CG animals and the giants’ land of Gantua. Digital Domain and Giant Studios worked with actors before principal photography to establish their characters and combined their talents to enable a cutting-edge simultaneous body and facial performance capture process. Our virtual production pipeline gave filmmakers an accurate understanding of the CG giants’ performance, position and timing while shooting giant-dominated sequences and scenes where giants interacted with live actors.
