Framestore used 16 Vicon T40 cameras on the pre-visualisation for space scenes in Gravity. Framestore integrated the cameras with Blade – Vicon’s data capture and data processing system – to help create complex and extremely realistic visual effects. They will also use the cameras for pre-vis on the upcoming film Jupiter Ascending.
Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity has created more buzz in the digital cinema production world than any motion picture in recent memory. The (quite literally) breathtaking twelve-minute single take opening shot that begins in outer space with a satellite repair mission gone wrong and ends with Sandra Bullock's astronaut cast terrifyingly into the void is just one of Gravity’s filmmaking achievements that has captured wide attention.
You have never seen anything quite like Gravity before. At a time in movie making where it seems possible for filmmakers to create any effect, no one has ever created effects like these.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ Gravity will have its New York premiere in Dolby Atmos at the AMC Lincoln Square on Tuesday, October 1.
