Former United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself.

As the 3D conversion partner on the movie the stereo team is proud to have delivered stereo 3D conversion services for Brad Pitt’s apocalyptic horror movie World War Z. The stereo conversion team delivered the 2076 shots it contributed to the movie.

In line with changing stereo tastes amongst audiences, with World War Z the decision was made to create lots of depth for this show pulling elements out from the screen into theater space and providing ample opportunity for ‘3D moments’ – including zombie attacks and immersive environments. Using reference material the team modeled Brad’s face extremely accurately and used this geometry throughout the film to create depth mattes, match moving the model to each shot to generate accurate z-depth and ensure consistency.
