RISE VFX Company Showcases WINTER SOLDIER Work; DOP To Return For CAPTAIN AMERICA 3
With an official still featuring the big reveal of Nick Fury's other eye, the Winter Soldier stunt double and RISE visual effects company have showcased their contribution to the Captain America sequel.

First up is Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier stunt double, Justin Sundquist, who has taken to Instagram to share some cool behind-the-scenes photos as well as filming of a knee-striking stunt with he and Chris Evans' double, Sam Hargrave.

For the Captain America: The Winter Soldier director of photography, Trent Opaloch (pictured below with Stan Lee), the final product caught him “by surprise” and greatly exceeded his expectations. In an interview with The Province, Opaloch praised working with duo directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and he also confirmed that he will certainly return as cinematographer for Captain America 3. “It’s a heck of a lot of fun to be working with some of the world’s most professional film technicians and artists,” he said. “The Marvel films really let me scratch that itch, and that’s a really marvellous thing to do — and then for me it’s all about getting back to the lower budget stuff. You have different challenges, they’re more hands on. I’m a bit of a homebody and I have to travel so much for work, so the plan is to stick with commercials for the year and maybe sneak one film in before Cap 3 starts up next year,” Opaloch assured. “But if I don’t find the right project, I am not going to do a film just to do a film.”
Meanwhile, RISE, one of the many visual effects studios on Captain America: The Winter Sodier, has revealed their work on the movie with official images. The VFX vendor's digital compositor, Oliver Hohn, explained to Art of VFX that RISE were behind the look of Nick Fury's eye-patched eye revealation, among other things. “The first step was to find reference material,” said Hohn of the design process. “We searched for pictures showing exactly that kind of wounds and scars. Which is, to be honest, not the most enjoyable thing to do. After that a matte-painter created the first concepts and in parallel we prepared the comp to be able to send the first layouts with the exciting revelation of Fury’s eye.” Check out three official stills below showcasing RISE's work, as well as four other images that were previously unreleased.
