Gaining critical acclaim from comic book fans and film critics alike, Marvel seem to have struck gold with their latest sci-fi superhero action caper, Guardians of the Galaxy. Set 1,000 years in the future, the story sets a band of intergalactic misfits against villains aiming to rule the cosmos. Directed by James Gunn, the film stars an eclectic group of characters and celestial landscapes, all requiring a vast amount of visual effects to bring them to life.
The Method team was supervised by Greg Steele in LA and Stéphane Nazé in London, and over the course of five months, 140 artists produced over 170 shots. A wide range of VFX were required including digital environments, holographic effects and FX simulations.
