I was blow away with the special effects in this movie. Does anyone know which company created the end credit sequence animation?

The Main On End Title Sequence was created by Rok!t, now known as Method Studios.

Another awesome article! I was wondering how they made Evans look skinny as I was watching it. I assumed it was a digital head on another body, but it's way cooler the way they actually did it. The tedious frame-by-frame reduction paid off pretty nicely. They should be very proud of that.

The subtle reduction of Red Skull's face is something I didn't notice/think about when I was watching it, I thought that looked pretty good as well.

Nice collaboration with a whole lot of effects companies. Very good job with all the subtle stuff. Makes me appreciate the movie even more (which I liked plenty to begin with).

And what, is Chris Evans too dainty to actually run through the street without flesh colored boots on...? Actors...! :)

Yes, Frank - towards the end of the article, I talk about the work of Rok!t that created that cool end title sequence...

We have been so busy, Debra, that Kathlyn and I didn't have plans to go see Captain America. But reading your article, I think that we have to go see it now. Thank you for another great look behind the lens.

Does "lensed" mean Director of Photography?

Ronald - So glad my article inspired you and Kathlyn to go see the movie. The "skinny Steve" effect is particularly impressive! Enjoy! Debra

Yes, John - "lensed" does mean shot...All my years of writing for the Hollywood Reporter, I still have the habit of using Hollywood trade publication lingo, though I promise not to use "ankled" for fired!

Great article, Debra. The subtle FX are always the best because you don't even realize they're an effect until it's pointed out to you. I too thought the skinny Steve was a head replacement. Amazing artistry by these companies.

Thanks, Matt. I am also a fan of invisible effects - and nearly every movie has them nowadays!
