In Production

We’re currently creating visual effects for exciting blockbusters, including Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Tomorrow War, The Eternals, and a few others we can’t talk about just yet!

Jojo Rabbit

Fox Searchlight's Oscar-winning film, Jojo Rabbit, is a WWII satire that follows a lonely German boy, Jojo, as his world is turned upside down with the discovery that his single mother is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. Luma's VFX crew teamed up with visionary writer and director Taika Waititi to help bring his imaginative film to life.

We delivered an array of invisible effects throughout many sequences in the film, including set extensions, snow, fire, and smoke FX, and day for night treatments. Check out the video below to see a behind-the-scenes breakdown of our work.

League of Legends: Opening Ceremony

Luma teamed up with Riot Games to bring their show-stopping Opening Ceremony VR Concert to life for the League of Legends World Championship. The game is one of the premier events in the esports industry, and the Opening Ceremony never fails to push the boundaries of creativity and technology. 

Our team created 3D buildings, CG characters, and various eye-catching fx for the opening sequence within a tight three-month timeline.

Luma wins AACTA Award for Best Visual Effects

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Luma Pictures was honoured with the Best Visual Effects Award for Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: Far From Home at the 2019 Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts Awards.

VFX Supervisor Brendan Seals led the Luma Melbourne team across four big sequences in the film 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 the Spider-Man Stealth Suit in the majority of the sequence, and developed FX simulations for 90% of the shots. Luma’s collaboration spanned creative development, R&D, tech-vis and post vis to final execution.
