Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

After collaborating with Marvel Studios on the train fight scene in Captain Marvel, the Luma Pictures team was called upon again to create a similar sequence for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, this time onboard a bus. The memorable fight takes place onboard a moving bus that is careening out of control in the streets of San Francisco, ultimately splitting in half. For this sequence, Luma Pictures’ work involved creating a CG bus, CG digital doubles of the bus passengers, a CG San Francisco environment, Razor Fist's blade, as well as complex face replacement work using deep learning technology.

Space Jam: A New Legacy

Luma Pictures collaborated with Warner Bros. on the highly anticipated sequel to the classic film to deliver 202 shots across seven sequences in the film. In the film, LeBron James and his young son, Dom, get trapped in digital space by a rogue AI. To get home safely, LeBron teams up with Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang for a high-stakes basketball game against the AI's digitized champions of the court. Luma created Dom's video game holograms, extensive CG environments for Dom's magical bedroom and the Warner Bros. Server-verse, as well as digital stadium crowds.

Wanda Vision: Series Finale

Luma Pictures collaborated with Marvel Studios on their Emmy nominated series on Disney+, WandaVision, for the epic series finale. The Luma team had the special task of creating Agatha Harkness's ancient book of spells, The Darkhold. This was the first time the Darkhold was going to be revealed on-screen in the Marvel Universe, aside form a brief appearance in Agents of Shield. Marvel provided early stage concept art, and it was up to our team to bring this magical book made of metals to life.

The team also created the Monica Rambeau Intangibility Effect, where Monica uses her phasing powers to absorb the energy of several gunshots and allows the bullets to pass through her body while she absorbs their kinetic energy.
