I was one of a crew of sculptors sent to Albuquerque, NM to be part of set construction.
Parts installed on the bridge.
Next build was for the Thor / Loki confrontation on a rocky cliff dubbed The Promontory. The following are progress photos from start to finish. It also is an example of many big budget movie sets these days that are a small section of real surface that get extended digitally.
Jamie Miller's scale model.
Blocking and carving.
Just knowing that this was going to lead to epic battle between Thor, Iron Man and Captain America was enough for me to know that this was a movie I already couldn't wait to see.
