Legend3D work on Hugo
Legend3D recently announced its role as the primary conversion vendor on Hugo, Martin Scorsese's first 3D film that opened on Nov. 23, 2011.
Hugo was shot using 3D camera rigs but Legend3D was tasked with restoring, colorizing and converting to 3D an assortment of vintage 2D material across three key sequences in the film. This included classic cinema from the early 1900s, such as Georges Melies' A Trip to the Moon and The Merry Frolics of Satan, as well as new footage of Ben Kingsley in his role as Melies. To accomplish this, Legend3D first restored the source material in 2D while still retaining the vintage "look." This material was then converted to 3D to match the overall depth of Scorsese's native photography.
