THOR: RAGNAROK [2017] - With Corinne Teng 

What did RSP do on Thor:Ragnarok?

RSP produced more than 170 final visual effects shots for Thor: Ragnarok. Our team spent more than 18 months helping to craft some of the film’s most memorable, creative and technically challenging scenes. This included a sequence dubbed “Val’s Flashback” involving a furious battle between the film’s villain, Hela (Cate Blanchett), and an army of Valkyrie. The team also played a key role in “The Palace Battle”, an epic confrontation between Hela and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and in reimagining the Bifröst Bridge, a magical rainbow that links realms of the Norse cosmos.

The project is especially noteworthy for the standout work of RSP’s expanded character animation department, who were tasked with creating photo-real horses, Valkyrie and skeleton soldiers, as well as other digital characters.
