LOS ANGELES, April 27, 2018 – It was another epic adventure for the visual effects artists at Exceptional Minds Studio, who attended Wednesday’s cast and crew screening of Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War.”
“Avengers: Infinity War” is the latest in a string of Marvel Studios movies for Exceptional Minds Studio, the only visual effects and animation studio staffed entirely by professionals on the autism spectrum. Exceptional Minds artists have done visual effects and/or end title credits for Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Doctor Strange,” “Captain America: Civil War,” “Ant-Man” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
For “Avengers: Infinity War,” which opens in theaters today, Exceptional Minds artists Nicolas Arredondo, Andrew Dugan, Tiana Fazio, Lloyd Hackl, Eli Katz, Annie Leffe, Madeleine Petti, Tony Saturno and Mason Taylor did vfx cleanup on several shots (tracker marker removals, roto, and paint) and Exceptional Minds artists Xavier Romo and Thomas Harmonson put together the end title crawl. In addition, Exceptional Minds Studio Executive Producer Susan Zwerman and Studio Coordinator Jennifer Giandalone, along with visual effects supervisors Immanuel Morris, Kenneth Au, Megan Flood and Josh Dagg, supervised both visual effects and end title credits for the movie.
The cast and crew screening was held Wednesday, April 25, at the Regency Village Theater.
Since opening its doors almost four years ago, the small studio has done tracker marker removal, split screen, green screen keying and rotoscoping for compositing as well as end title credit work and animation for more than 50 major motion pictures and/or television series. “Black Panther,” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “The Good Doctor” are recent additions.
