Luma’s Work for Doctor Strange Featured in VFXBlog

Why Creating the Dark Dimension Was So Damn Hard

Luma was tasked with the incredible opportunity to work on the climatic sequence in Marvel’s Doctor Strange where he travels to the Dark Dimension to confront Dormammu.  So, how did the crew tackle this challenge?

In this VFX Blog feature, Marvel VFX Supervisor (Stephane Ceretti) and Luma’s VFX Supervisor  (Vince Cirelli) dive into the nitty-gritty details behind the creative and technical process of Dormammu and the Dark Dimension.

“Essentially they’d given us three crayons to draw with, and somehow we need to bridge the gap between live action plates that were shot and this incredibly graphic environment that was heavily, and intentionally stylized.”

– Vince Cirelli, Luma VFX Supervisor
