Art Director Dave Bleich takes us into the Spider-Verse.

Creative ambition continually forces technology to evolve in the screen industry and with it, new roles are created and some evaporate. Dave Bleich steps us through his approach to the lesser-known process of colour script design for the epic feature animation, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse from Sony Pictures Animation.
