With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 now in theatres, Sony Imageworks continue to release brief featurettes for the sequel which give us a fascinating insight into how they brought characters like Electro to life on the big screen.

This one looks at how they went about creating the look of Electro’s dematerialization powers, and it’s narrated by David Smith, Digital FX Supervisor.

In The Amazing Spider-Man™ 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy – between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away – but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Chris Cooper and Paul Giamatti, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out now!
