IMAX and Mistress LA came to Framestore with a project aimed at demonstrating the ultimate filmic experience, to capture the essence of what it means to watch and experience films in the IMAX premium format. From early on we helped them scope and shape the brief, helping explore the different vignettes and ultimately realise the story of each scene - for what would be the first ever commercial shot in the digital IMAX format.

VFX Supervisor Leo Costa says:'' Our team worked on a variety of Visual Effects, adding lasers, smoke, fire, atmosphere, wire removal, CG helmet replacement, adding breath and in some cases full background replacement.

Working with Alexa 65 brought some considerable advantages for post production. The dynamic range of the camera combined with a open gate full area sensor of 6K resolution provides stunning pictures. The higher resolution helped us get accurate camera and object tracking, and the plus 14 stops range recorded in raw allowed us to pull some incredibly high quality mattes. ''

This project took our pipeline to the limit, completing comp and CG at 6K resolution, and delivering in both full res cinemascope and full height projection. Directed by Ash Bolland and graded by Simon Bourne, the film was shot on the IMAX customised Alexa 65 and mastered in Dolby 12.1, the final piece is a flagship film that will now run before IMAX movies in over 65 countries globally from this week.
