Micheal Bay Strikes Again with "Transformers 5" Shot in Native Stereoscopic 3D
"If I'm going to do 3D, I'm going to do it the right way. Believe it or not, I think we are the only 3D movie being shot native this year." said Michael Bay about his last opus, "Transformers: The Last Knight" that will be released on June 21, 2017 in the US.
Technical premiere: "Transformers: The Last Knight" was shot with a 3D rig fitted with two Arri Alexa 65s to effectively create the stereoscopic footage for IMAX 3D instead of having to make adjustments in postproduction.
Cameras and FX
As said in FilmJournal, the Last Knight is the first movie in the world to strap two such cameras into a 3D rig. The team also used two RED Dragon rigs, "one that could be a wider lens, one that could be a little tighter lens," director of photography Jonathan Sela explains. "The difference was only one focal length, but they did give you the option of doing different things. We had a big array of tools, anamorphic lenses, Hawk lenses, many different configurations."
As with previous Transformers installments, Industrial Light & Magic serves as the main visual effects company for Transformers; The Last Knight.
