(The morning watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of notable videos from the web. It could be video essays, fan-made productions, feature films, shorts, hilarious skits, or anything about our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, take a closer look at all of the arrows from Marvel’s “Hawkeye” series and how they were created with both practical and visual effects. Plus, speaking of visual effects, check out what the Corridor Crew gang thinks about the VFX work done on films like “Paddington”, “Dumbo” and “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle”. And finally, see what Kemp Powers, writer of “One Night in Miami” and co-director of “Soul”, selects from the closet of the Criterion collection.

All of Hawkeye’s fictional arrows

First, Marvel sat down to chat with Greg Steele, VFX Supervisor of the “Hawkeye” series, to find out how they brought the various rigged arrows in Clint Barton’s arsenal to life. Along with the physical arrows used on set, the visual effects all need to bring them to life, as Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld don’t fire any projectiles from their bows during production. Watch the entire video for more information on creating various action sequences from throughout the season.

Then, with a deeper dive into visual effects work, the Corridor Crew gang brought in Josée Chapdelaine, CG Supervisor and CFX Head at Rodeo FX to discuss some of their favorite sequences along with some awesome VFX work. They start by focusing on everyone’s favorite bear in “Paddington”, as well as other CGI animals in “Dumbo” and “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle”. But they also highlight a zombie monster truck sequence from “Zombieland: Double Tap”.

Kemp Powers enters the closet of the Criterion collection

Finally, Kemp Powers made waves with his screenwriting work on “One Night in Miami”, and became Pixar’s first noir screenwriter and director with “Soul.” Soon he’ll be entering the multiverse with “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One),” but before that, the Criterion Collection invited him to their library closet to pick out some of their favorite movies. He couldn’t help but pick “A Night in Miami”, but also picked “12 Angry Men”, “Cronos” and more.
