Luma Pictures was honoured with the Best Visual Effects Award for Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: Far From Home at the Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts Awards. The Industry Luncheon was held on Monday, December 2nd at the Star Centre in Sydney, Australia.
The Luma Melbourne team, led by VFX Supervisor Brendan Seals, worked on four sequences including the major action-packed Molten Man Battle. Luma partnered with Marvel Studios early on to design and develop the Molten Man character and sequencing of the battle. The team was responsible for augmenting and replacing the Prague environment and Spider-Man Stealth Suit in the majority of the sequence, with FX simulations developed for 90% of the shots. Luma’s collaboration spanned creative development, R&D, tech-vis and post vis to final execution.
