The amount of effort that went into Sony’s 3D commercial Two Worlds is pretty unbelievable. I’ve watched this video twice now and still don’t know if I know what I’m seeing. The creative team filmed the actors at 2500 FPS which required more than half a million watts of lighting and some of the largest fabric grids I’ve ever seen. Then using green screen, they filmed tons of slow motion projectiles to help their CGI team in the rendering of the background and moving elements. Because super slow motion video often looks fake even if it’s real, making sense of what is real and what isn’t real in this video is what makes it so interesting to me. Watch the making of below and then watch the full commercial inspired by the legendaryLeonard Cohen below.
