Robert Pattinson The Batman Using Mandalorian Virtual Production Techniques for Selet Scenes

imgbox

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Warner Bros.’ The Batman, which is currently filming in the UK, is using virtual production techniques for select scenes, Industrial Light & Magic chief creative officer Rob Bredow revealed on Monday, during a featured session from this year’s virtual VIEW visual effects and animation confab.

Virtual production — a term generally used to describe techniques that enable real-time visual effects production — has been steadily growing in popularity, particularly with Jon Favreau’s uses on The Lion King and The Mandalorian.

Bredow declined to detail work on The Batman, only saying the production design team had pre-built practical sets in the UK and an LED wall was built around these sets to enable use of virtual production in those specific scenes. He added that this meant the ILM team could continue to collaborate with Batman DP Greig Fraser, who recently won an Emmy for The Mandalorian and also shot Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

And for those like me who need layman’s terms on what this means – Collider provides the following:

Briefly, what made The Mandalorian cutting-edge was the ability to render virtual backgrounds in real-time on an LED wall using a game engine. This meant that scenes set outside on a cold planet, indoors at a tavern, or in a massive star-ship hangar could all be shot on the same soundstage with the VFX background rendered in real-time. Meaning you didn’t have to wait 9-12 months for the post-production team to create the background after the fact.

The connective tissue here is Fraser, the DP behind both the first season of The Mandalorian and the highly anticipated reboot The Batman. He helped develop the virtual production technology and ensure it worked in a cinematic way, and when I spoke to Fraser earlier this year during an extended interview about his career, he predicted almost every film in the future would be using this technology:

“I see a world where almost every film will use this technology in some way, shape or form. Be it from a $250 million blockbuster down to a $2 million independent movie using it for one sequence that they dry hire a studio that’s already been built and they get in there like a location. So I believe when the technology kicks on and gets widely adopted, when people understand what it can do, I believe it’ll be used quite a lot.”

Netflix’s For Your Consideration website is now “live” and includes The Devil All the Time as a contender for awards season in 2021. Fingers crossed the movie and cast receive some recognition. We will follow this closely and keep you updated on what transpires.

Robert Pattinson one of the 5 best things about Tenet

image host

Looper take a look at the 5 best and worst things about Tenet. Of course, without any bias here, one of the 5 best is Robert Pattinson. Here’s what Looper had to say:

Most of Christopher Nolan’s films are heavily star-studded and he, like many other directors, has a list of favorite actors to fall back on when starting pre-production on a new project. We can only hope Robert Pattinson gets added to Nolan’s first-look list, because he rules in this movie. 

Pattinson’s character, Neil, has a particularly difficult part to play in this film, as he has an entire friendship with the Protagonist (John David Washington) and the knowledge that comes with it that he has to keep concealed from his friend at all times — at least, until the Protagonist figures it out for himself. Pattinson maintains that façade with ease and artistry, but throws in little bits of emotion here and there to portray Neil’s inner conflict as he tries to repress his natural inclination to be the Protagonist’s friend in their more casual conversations. It all helps the audience to understand that relationship in its totality later on.

He’s a little goofy and fun, too — sometimes appearing in scenes with a loose tie and rumpled appearance when he doesn’t need to be putting on airs for anybody, or aiming for humor and charmingly missing the mark. It adds a much-appreciated chaotic energy to the film, bucking Nolan’s tendency to write rather emotionally sterile characters for twisty narratives that use people like pieces in a sophisticated game.

Is Robert Pattinson #Tenet’s Best Hopes for an Oscar?

We have been down this road twice before – with Good Time and The Lighthouse. Without any bias, Rob’s performances in both films deserved recognition at the Academy Awards – it is after all a show that purports to acknowledge acting talent. Given the difficulties everyone has faced in 2020, the Oscars will be broadcast for the first time since 1953 later than usual – 25 April 2021. Perhaps 2021, will be “Neil” and Rob’s year for best supporting actor. Edward’s Ace seems to think so and tweeted that Rob is Tenet’s best chance for a gold statue (Erick also has him in contention with The Devil All the Time). To check out other categories in contention for Tenet head over to his website Award’s Ace.
