20 Years of Sony's VFX House Imageworks
It's been twenty years since Sony Pictures formed Imageworks, its in-house visual effects company that has seen work on all of the Spider-Man movies as well as Men in Black 3, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and much more.
Says The Hollywood Reporter, "With a mix of artistry, technical R&D and experimentation, Imageworks continually has helped reimagine the world of Spider-Man and his various opponents -- especially those scene-stealing villains. 'There is a theatricality to certain Spider-Man characters, particularly the villains,' says Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb. 'We spent a lot of time thinking about how [the villain] The Lizard would work biologically. A big part of that was how he would talk -- the mouth and the musculature. You are really creating a species from the ground up.'"
