Cinesite Delivers John Carter to Mars
For the stereo conversion Cinesite hired one of the industry’s most respected stereographers, Scott Willman and built a new pipeline based on Nuke and proprietary tools. Scott’s team meticulously rotoscoped and rotomotioned each object in every shot to achieve the highest possible 3D quality.
“Working on John Carter has been an epic journey for us,” said Antony Hunt, managing director of Cinesite. “We’ve pushed our creative ability to a new limit with outstanding visual effects, and our pipelines have been well and truly put to the test. John Carter is our first full stereo conversion of a feature film and the feedback we’ve had from Andrew and Disney on the conversion quality has been fantastic.”
