ONE OF THE coolest things to come to Agent Carter this season has been the introduction of Zero Matter, the crystalline black goo that brought some serious otherworldly panache to the lives of Peggy Carter and company. And while the substance, also known as Darkforce, may not be real—at least we hope not—some of the science behind it is. Visual effects supervisor Sheena duggal worked with Visual effects company Double Negative and University of Southern California physics professor Clifford Johnson to get the containment devices for Zero Matter as close to authentic as possible. (Those are also Johnson’s Fermi equations on the chalkboards seen in the show.)

As is common with big block buster films, there was a process of review that lead to additional photography. On Thor, The Dark World, this included shooting additional material with the main cast such as Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and others, as well as a lot of new vfx material for key parts of the film’s big effects sequences. Experienced VFX supervisor Sheena Duggal supervised the additional photography that was shot in Hong Kong and Los Angeles as vfx supervisor. Duggal has worked with Marvel before, as she is both an experienced supervisor and has a strong design background.
Duggal’s career, which has paralleled the development of technology, should convince anyone that putting an artist in charge of the bits and bytes can produce magic.
This week we talk to The Hunger Games visual effects supervisor Sheena Duggal about the Gary Ross film, which looks set to become a blockbuster hit based on the Suzanne Collins novel.
While the look of this survival-of-the-fittest, reality-TV nightmare evokes Hitler’s Third Reich, the control room is actually the most futuristic component of the movie. This was crucial to director Gary Ross and VFX supervisor Sheena Duggal, who had only 23 weeks to pull off 1,200 total VFX shots on a very tight budget. But when Lionsgate enthusiastically supported a temp version of the movie early on, they increased the VFX budget, allowing Duggal to spread the wealth among a dozen more companies.
