THE VISUAL EFFECTS OF WONDER WOMAN
with Zoe Cranley & Brian Connor, Double Negative
July 12, 2017

The box office has made its ruling, and the verdict is clear. You can’t keep a wonderful woman down. Not only is Wonder Woman breaking box office records, but it’s a runaway success with moviegoers and critics alike. Yes, that “Amazing Amazon,” the “Spirit of Truth,” the “Goddess of Love and War,” our beloved Wonder Woman is lassoing the affections of audiences worldwide.

But Wonder Woman has broken ground in more ways than fans realize. With supervisor roles in the VFX industry dominated by men, Wonder Woman truly is a symbol of female power. The first big female-led superhero movie in years, and the first helmed by a female director, Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman is inspiring our perceptions of womanhood and power. As well, it has allowed the wonderful women of VFX to showcase their skills with the very personification of women’s empowerment.

Please join us as CG Supervisor Zoe Cranley and 2D Supervisor Brian Connor discuss the creative and technical challenges behind Double Negative’s work on Wonder Woman.
