“We always knew that it was going to be a lot because when you’re reading the script, and you’re designing the characters you’re kind of like, ‘This could be a big movie…’ I don’t think any of us truly understood the (sic) sheer volume of work that was done until we were there,” Legacy FX co-founder Lindsay MacGowan told Deadline during Thursday’s world premiere in Los Angeles. He was joined on the carpet by hair department head Cassie Russek and makeup department head Alexei Dmitriew.
Added MacGowan: “It starts off with that design. So we had a huge team of designers at Legacy to come up with the ideas for the new characters that are in the movie… once we’ve designed them, then we sculpt them, and then we break them down. Alexei would be there and we’d go through the appliances [to discuss], ‘How are we going to apply this on the day?’ And kind of go from there. So once we’ve made charts for every single thing that we’re doing, we then make it and then we pass it off to Alexei and Cassie for their team to apply it on the day.”
“We put this huge catalog together as well as the new stuff,” Dmitriew said. “James [Gunn] really is great about knowing what he wants and where he wants it. So he was able to pick, ‘I want this, I want that,’ and then we break it down to how big the scene is and how many numbers we need."
