Thor: Ragnarok- How The Amazing Valkyrie Flashbacks Were Made

Thor: Ragnarok Director, Taika Waititi made use of a new movie making technology in creating the amazing visual battle scene between Hela and Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok. This  is where Valkyrie and her co-Asgardian warriors were riding their respective Pegasus, charging towards Hela, in order to hold her captive as ordered by Odin. Following the recent release of the film, Dan Kois has shared the detail of Waititi using his concept “What We Do In The Shadows”. The technology is called Dynamic Light to film the scene:

“One thing I couldn’t get into the Taika profile was a bit about the very cool tech used on the Valkyrie-Hela fight. It’s called DynamicLight, it’s brand new, co-developed by @stuetr, whom fans of WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS will know as everyone’s pal Stu. As far as I understand, the system involves 200 lights in a circle that fire in sequence, one per frame, as you shoot a scene. As that slo-mo sequence was shot at about 1000 frames per second, it makes quite a striking effect…Marvel is omnipotent, but Taika also made shit happen. This unproven tech by his mate is in THOR on his initiative. I thought that was cool.”
