Stereo

As the exclusive 3D conversion partner on the movie the stereo team decided that one of the key notes was to make it as immersive as possible, so the team augmented certain key sequences to pull the audience even further into the film. As this was a monster movie, the team had action coming out of the screen at the audience whenever possible, and played the show deep.

Extra VFX elements were used to achieve this effect; for example, to enhance a ferocious battle in the fog, extra VFX elements were layered into the shot to create the effect of the fog rolling out of the screen and into theater space, addressing the director’s request that the audience share the sensory deprivation that the characters were experiencing.
