Oblivion 2013: Behind the Scenes
For those of you interested in ‘behind the scenes’ footage of science fiction films, this is an interesting look at ‘Oblivion’, released in 2013. According to the site “It has detailed information about the world of “Oblivion” the shot locations, the stunts, the props, and the combination of practical and CGI effects including a stunning look at the sky tower that has an amazing 360 degree screen to capture the look of being in the clouds”.
Interesting note, as mentioned above, was how the production team used a ‘surround or 360 screen’ to portray a cloudscape rather than use green/blue screen on their impressive set. The reason given is that due to all the glass and gloss of the interior, it would have been very difficult to remove ‘spill’ form a green/blue screen in post-production. So, sometimes the old-fashioned in-camera effect is the way to go. Watch out for a full-scale model of the ‘bubble’ ship – looks great!
