RSP’s Dynamic Duo to Speak on ‘Captain Marvel’ VFX at AEAF
Malte Sarnes, Visual Effects Supervisor and Alexandra Daunt Watney, Senior Producer from Rising Sun Pictures (RSP) are coming to speak at AEAF about their work on 'Captain Marvel', a movie with the magic Marvel combination of thrilling effects and looks, memorable characters and a great story. The project involved a long list of effects vendors working on a large number of VFX-heavy shots – 300 of those shots were carried out at RSP.
Alexandra and Malte led the artists as they built a digital subterranean aircraft hangar, designed detailed futuristic holograms and developed a de-aging process transforming Samuel L Jackson to a more youthful Nick Fury.
Malte Sarnes started working in visual effects over 15 years ago. He joined RSP in 2017 when he led successful delivery on projects including ‘Animal World’, ‘Captain Marvel' and 'Ford v. Ferrari', a new film directed by James Mangold due for release in late 2019. Malte has supervised creative and complex work on productions such as ‘Fantastic Four’, ‘Rush’, ‘After Earth’ and ‘Game of Thrones’. Before his move to RSP, he spent six years with Pixomondo.
Alexandra Daunt Watney joined the RSP team in 2016 as Production Supervisor, where she was instrumental in helping deliver projects such as ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’, ‘Dumbo’ and ‘Alita: Battle Angel’. In that time, she also produced RSP’s work on ‘Tomb Raider’ and ‘Captain Marvel’. Prior to RSP, Alexandra worked as VFX producer on ‘Captain America’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and many other titles at Framestore in London.
