Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are back as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The film also sees the return of Marc Webb to the helm of the latest film in Marvel’s webbed superhero franchise. This time, Spider-Man faces off against a gauntlet of evil villains dispatched by mega-company Oscorp, including Jamie Foxx as Electro, Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin and Paul Giamatti as The Rhino.
Prime Focus World swung into action to deliver 3D conversion services for a total of 430 shots making up 25 minutes, or about 20 percent of the entire film, working closely with Sony Pictures Entertainment stereographer Ed Marsh and primary 3D conversion company Legend 3D throughout the process. Just over half of the work completed involved the finalization of shots that had been depth approved by Legend3D; the rest of the shots required full stereo conversion.
“It was a fantastic collaborative effort, both internally and in terms of our relationship with Legend3D,” said Prime Focus World Stereo Supervisor Barry O’Brien who led the project out of PFW’s London facility. ”We utilised our teams in London, Vancouver and Mumbai on this show - it was a truly global effort.”
“It was a really good opportunity to leverage our global capabilities,” agreed PFW View-D™ Producer Valeria Andino. “We kept shots moving around the clock to be as efficient as possible.”
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 released on May 2, 2014 in the US.
