Method Design for The Avengers

Beautiful and simple, Method Design’s (a division of Method Studios) end title sequence for Marvel’s latest blockbuster features exquisitely detailed, close-up shots of The Avengers’ costumes. My favourite part is how they’re all chipped, broken, scuffed, and worn. This piece is quiet and gorgeous – a total opposite to the film itself (which is anything but quiet), and as such, it gives the audience a perfect finish to the experience. Like an elegant dessert after a sumptuous main course. In case you’re wondering, yes this is definitely a film worth seeing.

From Method Studios’ page:

Creative Director for Method Design in LA, Steve Viola comments, “Many of the shots in the piece employ complex transitions that proved challenging with varying lenses, scene depths and text positioned in stereo. We were pleased with the resulting sequence, which while CG, is completely believable.”

Thanks, Whedonesque, for the tip.

    looks AMAZING!!!! great work! i would love to know more about the
    process and maybe a credit list so the artist can get some of the glory
    for their hard work.

    • Hey Tina, yeah we’re working on some Q&A with the team. Stay tuned. 

  • This is great. Did anyone notice the similarity between this and the credits for Snow White and the Huntsman? I was rather disappointed, for the sake of conceptual “originality,” though the visuals were quite well done.
