3D Tech Bits

The opening of the firts "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie was shot anamorphically with a Alexa XT camera on Cooke Xtal Express lenses, while they went spherical for the rest of the film with Panavision Primo and Angenieux Optimo Lenses, partly as a way to give more room for reframing with VFX. Images were 2.8 K with a 4:3 aspect ratio. Shooting in 8K is giving director Jales Gunn far more freedom - reframing and stabilization are no more an issue. And the diminutive size of the WEAPON is incredible... so we suspect the small size was used to shot 360° for a future VR version??? To be confirmed !
