While it took some horrific and torturous experiments to bring the character of Deadpool out of Wade Wilson, a recently released featurette shows that bringing the character of Colossus to life wasn't so easy, either.
In an earlier article, we discovered how it took five actors to bring Colossus to life, and now a new video released to celebrate Deadpool on DVD and Blu-ray has shown that there was an entire team dedicated to Colossus's metallic reflections.
How amazing is that?!
So basically, first the on-set performer does his thing:
Then the scene is shot without the Colossus on-set performer:
And then reflective gray and silver balls are filmed, so that in post-production the visual effects guys can work out all the sources of light in the scene:
On top of all that, the team also films HDRI (high dynamic range imaging), including panoramic:
The images allow the visual effects artists to have the full information about the light in the scene, and therefore tells them where they should have the light reflected on Colossus.
Talk about a long process, but I think Deadpool fans will agree that all the effort that was put into Colossus was well worth it, because he looked amazing.
Deadpool is now available to own on DVD or Blu-ray.
