Work Overview

DNEG Stereo converted ~10 min of beautiful 60fps, 180 degree, 4k footage. With the film consisting of long-cut documentary style shots, the team used alternate workflows to tackle shots up 6500 frames in length! Master planning was involved to ensure continuity and fluidity in sculpture, scale, and depth animation over the course of these shots. Details in corals, sea fans, schools of fish, volumetric lights, and underwater particulates were extracted to create realism and fill the space. The result is a breathtaking, immersive underwater experience!
