#gotgpicoftheday The exterior of the Kyln prison walkway, which leads prisoners into the Kyln itself (a much bigger structure four levels high I was standing on to take this picture). The Kyln set was composed of 350,000 pounds of steel. The only way we could afford to do it was to buy the steel, build the set, and then melt the steel down and sell it back. Amazingly, the Kyln was only our third or fourth biggest set. #gotg #guardiansofthegalaxy

  • lastofmykind8Hmmm. Interesting budget for a Marvel film.
  • ferocious_brosius@realjamesgunn Really excited that you used a lot if practical sets and makeup effects. 👍
  • jamesgunn@lastofmykind8 These sets actually end up being LESS expensive than when you do all of the shots with green screen (or at least when you do that with quality).
  • sigourney_sohma@realjamesgunn do we get to find out what the biggest set was? :)

  • trickytailsMy gosh can't imagine having to clean all that xD but I guess you won't need to if it's going to be melted

  • jason7707@realjamesgunn how long did it take to build a set like that? The other larger sets?

  • at0mskI can't even imagine being a director. The shear scale of everything involved would seem so overwhelming.
