Small Heroes, Big Effects
Behind the VFX of Ant-Man & the Wasp

Being able to change your size on the fly may not be the first superpower that comes to mind when you think about a superhero but as Ant-Man & the Wasp recently proved, it’s a mighty great power to have.

From a technical standpoint, it’s not as easy as simply shrinking and growing the heroes; there are buildings, vehicles and environments to deal with as well.

On Thursday, August 23, join us and Alessandro Ongaro, VFX Supervisor at DNEG, as he takes us behind the scenes on the making of Ant-Man & the Wasp and how he and his team achieved some of the film’s eye popping visuals.

Tickets are now on sale for $12 each or $10.80 each for groups of 5 or more. Note that group pricing is only available via online purchase.

When: Thursday, August 23 @ 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)
Admission: $12 // Groups (5+): $10.80*
* Group pricing only available through on-line advance sales
Admission includes GST.
Where: Roundhouse Community Centre
181 Roundhouse Mews (@ Davie & Pacific)
Vancouver, Canada
