Dune 2 was directed and produced by Denis Villeneuve, who co-wrote the screenplay with Jon Spaihts. Paul Lambert was the production VFX Supervisor, and Brice Parker was the Production VFX Producer.

DNeg led the visual effects, along with several other companies such as RodeoFX, Territory Studio, Wylie Co. and ReDefine. Australian cinematographer Greig Fraser was the DOP. As the team discusses in the show, he shot the grand fight that occurs early on in the film as black-and-white infrared. He used an Alexa LF camera that had been modified to be an infrared camera for the sequence.
