Published by:

Visual effects company Industrial Light & Magic has released a video detailing the stunning visual effects work that they put into the Marvel superhero film Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

This reel represents a small sampling of the nearly 900 visual effects shots ILM contributed to the film created by an international crew of 300+.

The bulk of ILM’s work appears in the film’s third act and consists of the helicarrier’s massive underwater hanger, their ensuing battle, and the helicarriers themselves inside and out, sprawling digital Washington D.C. and Rosslyn environments including the Triskelion building complex on Roosevelt Island, highly detailed digital doubles for Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).

Skiplagged, A Travel Site That Games The Airfare Multi-Stop Flight System

Published by:

Skiplagged

Skiplagged is a site founded by New York entrepreneur Aktarer Zaman that promises travelers deeply discounted flight prices by gaming the traditional flight connection system. The “hidden city” tickets are booked as if the flier is heading to a third destination, but disembarks at the second, thus only paying the connection price. United Airlines and Orbitz among others have sued the site over what they’ve deemed abuse of the system. Skiplagged, in turn, has launched a GoFundMe crowdfunding campaign to help address the suit.
