Director, Edgar Wright’s (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) eagerly awaited new film, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, is based on the cult comic book of the same name by Bryan Lee O’Malley and follows Toronto based hipster Scott Pilgrim and his band Sex bob-omb. The story charts Scott’s efforts to win the heart of the elusive girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers. However, nothing is ever straight forward in love and Scott soon discovers that in order to win Ramona’s heart, he must defeat each of her 7 evil ex-boyfriends in combat.

For its sheer sense of spectacle alone though, Scott Pilgrim is a treat, featuring some of the best special effects work I’ve seen this year…NYC Film Critic


When Wright approached Double Negative to help him realise the visual effects of the movie, DNEG’s VFX Supervisor, Frazer Churchill and his team, knew that the biggest challenges would be in keeping the spirit of the comic alive, making the graphics photographic and visualising the extremely stylised fight sequences, all of which were based in a hyper-real altered reality.

The visual effects employed in the film, covered a huge spectrum, including creating some of the film’s stylised exteriors and CG environments, comic book graphics, visualised music, and of course, the 7 fights, ranging from Kung Fu to skateboarding style (and everything in between), each of which escalated in spectacular intensity throughout the film and featured goodies such as Demon Hipster Chicks, Snow Dragons and a Sound Yetti, yes, a Sound Yetti!
