Check out The Amazing Spider-Man official trailer from Sony Pictures. This is the first movie to be shot in 3D using 3ality Digital’s new small, lightweight rigs
The Amazing Spider-Man movie is slated to be released in US theatres from 3 July 2012, and in the UK from 4 July 2012.
According to The Hollywood Reporter: “This is the first movie to be shot in 3D using 3ality Digital’s new small, lightweight rigs that allow for flexibility and mobility. 3ality was behind the pioneering 3D concert film U2 3D, released in 2008.”
“We tested virtually every product on the market and chose 3ality Digital because we were impressed by the compact size of the TS-5,” said Spider-Man director of photography John Schwartzman, who is using the rigs in configurations that include shoulder mounts for handheld and Steadicam.”
“You don’t get the unwanted shadowing effects during shots that sometimes appear using other 3D rigs, and the lens changes only take a few minutes,” he added. “We wanted a rig that would not only deliver the best quality and performance but also one that wouldn’t delay the production, so we have all the benefits of a 3D picture and we’re shooting to a 2D schedule.”
As with the previous Spider-Man movies, the VFX look absolutely amazing and this new technology sounds exciting as well as being a time-saver. We hope to bring you news on the making of key sequences from the film in the not too distant future.
