WEBINAR
BRINGING ZACK SNYDER’S VISION TO LIFE FOR 'JUSTICE LEAGUE'
Presented by Scanline VFX
Moderator: Sepp Sonntag with Bryan Hirota, Jono Freisler & Julius Lechner

Having worked on the 2017 theatrical version, Zack Snyder’s Justice League presented Scanline with unique challenges that come with revisiting a project years down the track, not to mention the additional two hours of content required. Scanline delivered more than 1,000 shots across 22 sequences, with work encompassing everything from hero creatures, character builds and digi doubles, to large-scale environment work and some epic battle and FX destruction sequences.

Bryan, Julius and Jono will discuss the process undertaken to restore and rebuild previous shots, as well as how they updated assets to work within their current pipeline. They will talk through the completely new characters and sequences created, including the beach torture sequence, the redesign and rebuild of the Russian environment, Flash’s cosmic rewind and the addition of Martian Manhunter.
