Discover how Marvel Studios created Avengers: Infinity War
Visitors to Gnomon next Thursday, 10 May 2018 will have a chance to discover how Marvel Studios designed its latest blockbuster at Road to Avengers: Infinity War, a free talk by the firm’s concept art team.
The two-and-a-half hour presentation provides a unique opportunity to explore Marvel Studios’ visual development process, and to see character designs and key illustrations from the new movie.
See early concept designs for the biggest superhero crossover in movie history
Already the year’s second highest grossing movie, Avengers: Infinity War packs in more Marvel Universe characters than previously thought possible without passing some kind of nerd event horizon.
As well as Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America et al, the film also squeezes in Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and pretty much the entire cast of Guardians of the Galaxy.
At Road to Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios reveal how their character designs evolved, looking at the visual development process from the previous Avengers movie, Age of Ultron, to the present day.
Led by head of visual development Ryan Meinerding, the event features a panel of six key Marvel Studios artists, including visual development supervisor and concept artist Andy Park, illustrators Charlie Wen, Jackson Sze, Anthony Francisco, Rodney Fuentebella and Phil Saunders, and modeler Josh Herman.
As well as showing early designs for Infinity War, the team will discuss how visual development process helps a director develop the look and feel of a film, and the pivotal role that 3D tools now play in concept work.
Free to attend, but register online in advance
Road to Avengers: Infinity War with Marvel Studios takes place at Gnomon’s Hollywood campus from 7.30-10.00pm on Thursday 10 May 2018. Entry is free, but you’ll need to register online in advance.
Unlike many of Gnomon’s events, the talk isn’t being Livestreamed, so you will need to be there in person. Gnomon is advising people to book their places early.
