What we do
Whether it’s for a 3D feature film, 3D broadcast or 3D concert, 3D advertisement, 3D industry / expo movie or a 360° project, we offer the necessary 3D / 360° expertise and 3D / 360° equipment that completes a native 3D / 360° production.
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.
- 3D stereography on set for feature, commercial, short film
- 3D stereography in broadcast and concert
- 3D production support / rental with 3D equipment and stereoscopic consultants
- 3D consulting for products or other projects (also in science, medical or industry)
- 3D workshops e.g. for cinematographers
If you require advice on a stereoscopic 3D related project please don’t hesitate to contact us.
What stereotec stands for
- Quick workflow and short setup times
- Outstanding 3D quality
- Excellent technical precision of the 3D footage
- Very experienced 3D crews
Who works on a 3D set
In dependence of the production budget and the film crew’s size you will find some or all of these experts on set:
A person who has the creative and technical responsibility over the whole 3D production. He is the third main creative person in addition to the Director and the DOP on a production.
- Consulting the Director, DOP and other departments about the specific requirements of a stereoscopic production
- Making a depth script to adopt the stereoscopic effect in regard to the story over the whole movie
- Communicating with the Director and the DOP about the choice of lens, the blocking and the framing
- Controlling the alignment of the rigs (can be done as well by a Stereoscopic Technician)
- Deciding about the interaxial during the shot as well as about convergence or HIT
- Accepting the stereo sweetening (matching both eyes / camera streams in color, geometry, exposure)
- Supervising the depthgrading
- Consulting in editing and in case Visual Effects are added to the stereoscopic footage
Often being a former camera assistant, the Rig Technician is responsible for the flawless technical operation of the 3D rig. He knows how to mount the cameras on the rig, how to attach and connect motors and how to handle and maintain the rig. He helps in the alignment process by setting up calibration charts or doing it by himself. He is as well the communication link between what is happening on the set and the stereographer in the stereographer’s tent. He acts also as a communicator between stereographer and camera operator.
Collects metadata of camera, lenses and rigs in a database and reports flaws or other comments on the stereoscopic material, cares about stereoscopic continuity issues and provides the stereographer with information about shots that proceed or succeed to the shot actually being recorded. Organizes and supports the stereographic team on location in communicating with the production about organization aspects (travel, accommodation, time planning).
Digital Image Technician
A person or team that is responsible for the technical setup and syncing of the cameras, the cabling from camera to the recording and to the video assist, to the 2D monitors (including the wireless directors monitor) and the 3D monitors. He is responsible of the technical monitoring of the image during the shot, the recording itself and the capture of the metadata.
Video Assist Operator
A person, who operates the video assist. He helps as well the Stereographer to provide tools for an efficient alignment and plays back the recorded shots on request of Director, DOP or Stereographer.
