This week, we had to recreate a scene from Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” and we decided to recreate the “Star gate” sequence. We experimented with Skybox in after effects to create a 360 video from 2d footage and the depth kit to create a face morphing effect on our main actor. We also used a projector to project the lights from the actual movie scene on our actor and used 3D sound from the original sequence.
Experimenting with Depth Kit
The whole DepthKit workflow was really time-consuming especially camera calibration but it was really cool to experiment and start learning this depth sensing camera and explore new cinematic techniques.
