One of the ideas that the director brought to the stereo team was to keep the depth quite shallow in the initial scenes of Belle in the village, and then really open up the depth when the action moves to the magical environment of the castle. During the scene with Maurice riding through the forest the team unnaturally compressed the depth, so that when the lightning strikes and the wolves attack we could expand it really quickly and throw the audience into the action, with wolves jumping out of the screen.
The stereo team spent a great deal of time on creating high detail in all of the environments. Inside the castle, the architecture was extremely important, from the angles on ceiling buttresses to the embellishments on the fireplace mantles. In the forest scenes there is fine sculpting in the many bare branches, snowbanks and roots, and the rest of the 3D space is filled with falling snow. This immersion makes the Maurice wolf chase one of the stand out scenes in the movie.
