He mentioned Hulk as an example. The green giant was made by computers, and though he had undergone several digital effects, he still looked lifeless.

“My job was to make him look alive, based on performances that the filmmakers desired in each shot,” Ronny explained.

Once Ronny was finished, Renald took over with work involving simulations on the characters’ costumes, muscles and hair.

“For instance, if the script said [a character’s] pants are made of denim, then I have to make them look like jeans. That image needs to get through to the viewers,” Renald said.

Avengers: Infinity War will hit local theaters on April 25. (wng)
