Over the past few months, there’s been a discussion online about VFX artists being displeased when working for Marvel Entertainment. According to one Reddit thread, some artists are done working with Marvel, and they’ve been harboring those feelings for quite some time. However, the cast and crew of the upcoming She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Disney+ series stand in solidarity with these talented artists.
During the TCA summer press tour She-Hulk panel, the showrunner discussed what’s happening with VFX artists Marvel has hired to work on its movies and TV shows. “I feel incredibly deferential to how talented these artists are and how quickly they have to work,” said EP and showrunner Jessica Gao. “Obviously, like much quicker than probably [the amount of time] given to them, in terms of like churning these things out.
“I know that there’s a lot of eyes on the CG and a lot of critique or whatever, but I do think that we have to be super conscious of, like you’re saying, how the work conditions aren’t always optimal and that they’ve made these amazing strides in this industry [and] in this tech, where I watch it and I see thoughts as opposed to, you know, it doesn’t look like a cutscene from a video game. It looks like I can see the person’s thoughts. I can see the character’s thoughts and I think that’s just–I feel very in awe of what they do. I’m very grateful that we’re at the point where, you know, we get to work with these amazing artists.
