For Marvel’s epic adventure, Digital Domain gave Thor an icy environment to conquer and frosty beast to vanquish. Under the guidance of Visual Effects Supervisor Kelly Port, Digital Domain teams in Vancouver and Venice created digital characters, creatures and environments for 340 shots. Digital Domain provided on-set supervision and created an unforgiving ice-and-rock environment for the planet Jotunheim, and the massive battle with Frost Giants that takes place there. The work was a seamless blend of CG characters and live-action footage of actors in costume. Digital Domain also worked closely with Marvel to develop the look of the Frost Beast, fully animate the fierce hybrid creature and enable it to interact realistically with its live-action foes and CG environment.
