There is no denying the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies, but they are also very expensive to produce due to the enormous costs involved in making a movie. The visual effects they used to bring many aspects of the Marvel comics to life also astounded us as viewers. But as it happens, the wonder of what we’re seeing doesn’t translate in the background.
On Twitter, Dhruv Govil, a former member of the VFX team for some MCU movies, recently criticized Marvel Studios for being a “horrible client,” overworking the artists, and having a condensed production schedule. He added that this problem has existed since the MCU’s earlier movies.
It is regrettable to hear these tales, which only serve to highlight the underlying and persistent problems with Hollywood studios’ treatment of the VFX artists who toiled arduously and nonstop to create some of the magic we see on screen.
Hopefully, Marvel will eventually address this issue as more artists actively voice their worries and frustrations. Since they are involved in so many projects in both film and television, they must rely heavily on the VFX artists. We’ll just have to wait and see if they ever do anything about it soon.
