We used our adopted IR-3D Rig for IR and regular shooting at the same time. It was an effect required by the production that could only be achieved by using 2 identical perspectives but using different types of cameras. One was an infrared camera, the other a regular, normal camera. We developed special tools and workflows to make this possible. The effect was impressive. Once the movie is released we can reveal the name of the major Hollywood production.
IRON MASK (aka MYSTERY OF THE DRAGON SEAL aka JOURNEY TO CHINA aka VIY 2) is to be released in Germany on May 27th 2021. Stereotec was responsible for the artistic and technical execution of the stereoscopy. The movie was awarded with the renowned LUMIERE AWARD for BEST 3D FILM. It was shot in Russia, Czech Republic and China. Director of Stereography was Stereotec CEO Florian Maier.

In October 2020 we conducted our 3D Workshop in Lübeck. It was a great group of about 20 young film students who conceived a music video in 3D. We shot on the STEREOTEC Lightweight Rig with 2 ALEXA Mini and two Optimo Zooms. We enjoyed very much the week full of enthusiasm.
