Jack the Giant Slayer

Directed By: Bryan Singer

Digital Domain filled the big screen with big beings – giants; humanoid in shape, but distinctly earthy in their appearance.  Artists created eight 20-24-foot-tall computer-generated hero giants (including a two-headed lead character) a hundred background giants, various CG animals and the giants’ land of Gantua. Working with the actors before principal photography to establish their characters, Digital Domain and Giant studios combined their talents to enable a cutting-edge simultaneous body-and-facial performance capture process and virtual production pipeline that gave the filmmakers an accurate understanding of the CG giants’ performance, position and timing while shooting giant-dominated sequences and scenes where giants interacted with live actors
