VES Award Nominee | Candyman

Best Supporting VFX in a Photoreal Feature

We're proud to announce Luma Pictures has earned a VES nomination for Best Supporting Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature on Jordan Peele's remake of a classic—Candyman. Melbourne based VFX Supervisor Andrew Zink received a nomination for his contributions. Luma worked closely with VFX Producer James McQuaide to create invisible effects that supported the vision of the filmmaker and left an impactful impression on the audience. Luma's work involved creating and animating Sherman Field’s photorealistic corpse across various sequences; CG bees; blood fluid simulations; cloth simulations; props; gore elements; and extensive Nuke-based projections.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

After collaborating with Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures on Spider-Man: Homecoming and Far From Home, Luma was invited back to the popular MCU franchise to deliver bespoke visual effects shots that were integral to the story. Luma took the lead on the asset creation of the Black and Red suit and collaborating with Marvel Studios to design and create Spider-Man's new Black and Gold suit for the film, each featured in the opening New York sequence and Powerline Corridor sequence. We modeled, textured and look-developed the suits from the ground up and shared the suit assets with other vendors for additional sequences in the movie. The Powerline Corridor scene was largely a full CG sequence, and we collaborated on the FX look development of Sandman and Electro.

The Luma Pictures team contributed unique visual effects on Marvel's Eternals—the team delivered over 400 shots across 17 sequences for Director Chloe Zhao's visionary film. In the film, a race of immortal beings with superhuman powers who have secretly lived on Earth for thousands of years reunite to battle the evil Deviants. Luma's wide range of work included developing the suit-up technology for the characters and each of their varied superpowers, which involved elaborate set extensions and FX simulations.


For Marvel Studio's hit series on Disney+, Luma Pictures worked across 20 sequences and delivered over 450 shots. The team created extensive digital matte paintings of the NYC skyline and streets . Luma also created Ronin's sword and Barton's bow and arrows.

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.
