Alita: Battle Angel follows the young cyborg Alita as she unearths her extraordinary past. Her palpable humanity was key to the film’s success, and her character represents a new standard of photoreal digital doubles and humanoid CG character realization. Take a look at how we harnessed the full gamut of cutting-edge VFX tools and artistry to bring her story to life.
Alita’s ability to interact with her environment and other characters was key to the success of Alita: Battle Angel. Watch our compositing breakdown reel to see how our VFX artists embraced the challenges.
Creating Alita’s world was incredibly complex. Iron City was designed as a light and colourful place influenced by Latin America, with discordant layers of textures and cultures to give it a dilapidated but energetic feel. The live set was built on soundstages at Troublemaker Studios and we completed the environment as a teeming world of reused technology populated by a mixed society of humans and cyborgs.
Alita: Battle Angel is a human story about a cyborg’s journey of self-discovery. Based on the performance of Rosa Salazar, the success of Alita rested on our ability to translate all the emotional nuances of a human into a CG character. See how our VFX artists rose to the challenge in this breakdown reel.
Recreating an iconic manga series as a live-action film calls for carefully considered cinematography. See how our VFX artists faithfully captured the story’s origin and retained maximum creative control for the directors of Alita: Battle Angel.
