Spiderman VFX breakdown

Here's a VFX breakdown of the high school fight scene from "The Amazing Spiderman" that was being worked on at Sony Imageworks during when I was on "Hotel Transylvania".

Congratulations to all my friends who worked on it, the VFX and animation are amazing! If I didn't have the chance to see some shots pre-rendered, I would never have thought some of these scenes are fully CG. Amazing work!
