Our rigs and our service follow the 2 basic ground rules for success: excellent and uncompromising quality and perfect economy to fit every budget – from a small 1-day production to a 60+ days Hollywood production.
Stereotec the 3D fantasy-action feature by Director Oleg Stephchenko grossed more than $ 17.7 million at the box office on the opening weekend, more than any other Russian film before. STEREOTEC founder Florian Maier worked as Director of Stereography on the production, assisted by his experienced STEREOTEC crew. The production used two ARRI Alexas on a STEREOTEC mid-size rig known for its excellent precision and quick calibration. In this way the production could be finished at the speed of a 2D production.

Lead Stereographer Florian Maier received another Lumiere Award for “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”. The movie was chosen to be the “Best 3D Feature” 2013 at the I3DS Europe Awards. STEREOTEC was providing equipment and 3D crew for shooting the Paramount production. The movie was a worldwide success with more than 225 Mio USD earned at the Box Office.
In December STEREOTEC shot a commercial for the well known Turkish brand “Arcelik”. Shooting took place in a Studio in Istanbul shot with two Red Epics on a fully motorized STEREOTEC Light-Weight-Rig. Shooting was exactly as fast as in 2D. The additional recorded metadata was very important as most of the set will be CG built. Stereography was done by Senior-Stereographer Florian Maier and his crew.
Stereotec just finished shooting a 3D commercial for Shvabe, a company that manufactures scientific glass for the space industry. The shooting took place in a studio in Moscow. DoP was the renowned Russian cinematographer Maksim Osadchiy (“Stalingrad”). It was shot with two epics on a Lightweight rig including STEREOTEC’s full automatic workflow – this made an extreme fast shooting speed possible; the 3D shooting didn’t take even a single minute longer the in 2D… The shoot was led by Senior Stereographer Florian Maier. More information will follow soon.
Stereotec is exhibiting at NATEXPO 2013 in Moscow from 19th to 21st of November. You will find us at the Feelsystems booth in Parvillion 2, hall 8. There is the new fully motorized Lightweight Rig shown with two EPIC and Angenieux Optimo Rouge Zooms…
