How Animators Created the Spider-Verse

When I walked out of the theater after seeing “Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse” I was dumbfounded into how they did the animation. I have a decent understanding for how movie effects are made, but I was at a loss for words on this film. Since then I’ve been anxious to learn more about how the creators achieved the results. This video from WIRED peels back the curtain to shed some light on the techniques and tricks used to bring the characters and world to life.

There are so many great nuggets of information in this video. Here are a few of my favorites:

Another great behind-the-scenes resource I enjoyed about S:ITSV is Ep. 197 of The Collective Podcast with Patrick O’Keefe who was an art director on the film. Give that one a listen too.
