Thor 112: How Many VFX Companies Does It Take to Screw in a Lightbulb?

Minute One Hundred Twelve: From Creature TDs to Stereoscopic Artists

In the one hundred twelfth minute of Kenneth Branagh’s 2011 film Thor

  • We talk about how our appreciation for the film has grown after watching and exploring it this way.
  • We also talk about some stand-out performances that really clicked for us.
  • So many VFX artists. We continue talking about each of the FX companies and what they did on the film.
  • We talk about Fuel VFX and the work they did.
  • What is Luma Pictures and what do they bring to the party? (Hint: he’s big, he’s all metal, and he’s ready to destroy.)
  • How about Evil Eye Pictures? Turns out they help with adding in crowds for Thor’s coronation.
  • Then there’s Whiskeytree, who created most of the Asgard exteriors.
  • And of course Stereo D, LLC, which did the post 3D conversion. Remember when that was a thing?
