Mutant Chronicles....Mattes & Miniatures....
There are more articles about the technology used here
We started shooting on R&S stages at Shepperton and then after 4 weeks moved to Island studio's on on the Isle of Man for a further 5 weeks
Initially we had 240' * 44' of green screen and it sorta grew from there :-)
Principal cameras were GVG/Thomson Vipers with Zeiss DigiPrimes
High speed photography was with pre-production Phantom HD's and later production models
Additional cameras used were the SI 2K Mini in a very early prototype form and the first F23 delivered in the UK
Simon and I used SpeedGrade to establish basic looks for the shoot.
These grades were loaded into a Truelight box to give use corrected viewing when we shot and then to keep the look during post.
