Premise

The origin story of the mythical Greek hero. Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom.

The script has so much depth and story to it.Kellan Lutz

Stereo

The 147 stereo shots the stereo team delivered for this show were completed in a tight timeframe of just three weeks. A technique employed by the stereo team to ensure timely delivery was implemented during the integration of the natively shot stereo footage and the converted CG environments created by the VFX team.

An integrated stereo compositing technique was developed by the team for areas of the frame that did not require full conversion, drastically reducing the amount of paint-work required and speeding up the process considerably. The project required a strong unified approach to ensure the filmmaker’s deadlines were met. On approval of the mono VFX shots, element breakouts were immediately made available to the stereo team allowing work on the show to progress very quickly. The work on The Legend of Hercules pushed the boundaries of the hybrid stereo approach.
