Ghost Rider made quite a splash during the season premiere of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. His quick dispatching of a group of white supremacists, and then his later battle with Quake, were better than anything we saw in the character’s two feature film outings.
But how did the effects team create such an awesomely realistic look for the Rider? There was definitely a lot of CGI involved, but the process also involved more practical effects than you might think.
The show’s VFX supervisor, Mark Kolpack, explains in this behind the scenes video how he created the lighting that would originate from the flames, as well as the transition from skin to bone, and the Rider’s facial expressions.
