Stereo

The stereo team’s full 3D conversion of Seventh Son amounted to 1,665 converted shots for the movie, and was notable for the extent of the pre-production creative planning carried out before the conversion began. The entire show was ‘depth framed’ – depth was applied to key still frames throughout the movie – to create a depth storyboard, which became an invaluable creative tool for both the filmmakers and the conversion team. As always, the stereo team was keen to use the depth it was creating to help enhance the storytelling.
