Synopsis

When John Connor, leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian, dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future.

Stereo

The Stereo team’s work on Terminator: Genisys involved lots of augmentation of shots with stereo particulates and the now standard use of head geometry for the main characters to ensure accuracy and consistency of facial sculpting across shots.

Some of the most challenging sequences were the scenes in the teleporter room. The characters were fighting within a glowing sphere with layers of vapour going around them, lightning, explosions and more. The layering of these elements in depth was a challenge. There were some shots that were originally going to be stereo renders from VFX that ended up being stereo converted.
