- Match-moving in stereo 3D
- Particle crowd generation
Created as part of the 3D stereo opening for THRILLER in Michael Jackson’s ill-fated stage show THIS IS IT. This was to run on a 100 foot wide by 30 feet high polarized screen on the stage so that the bats appeared to come out over the audience. At it’s closest point the bat which comes to screen would have measured 93 feet wide, wingtip to wingtip. This was one of several shots we completed and yet the only one which made it into the film of the same name.
Here’s a second solo-bat sequence I created which was to be used during the performance. Again these were all created in stereo 3D and so below that is an Anaglyph version of the main bat shot. It probably won’t work very well because of compression changing the blues and red but you might get some idea of how it was meant to look.
