Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - Breaking the Rules of Animation?
Sony Pictures Imageworks was tasked with breaking the rules in order to create a stylized universe and bring Sony Pictures Animation's Academy Award-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to the big screen. From animation to technology, artists were challenged with developing new tools and techniques to create a groundbreaking visual style for this fresh and highly original film, which introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where anyone can wear the mask.
