Excerpt from Cinefex
Major is introduced as Hanka machinery assembles her biological remains into her cybernetic body. Rupert Sanders prevised the sequence with creative director and visual effects supervisor Andrew Proctor at The Mill in Los Angeles, and developed robotic elements with Weta Workshop. "Rupert wanted to shoot as much as possible live," related Guillaume Rocheron. "We revised the sequence to a high level of detail and identified what we could shoot."
