Enhancing Reality: Our Role in Napoleon
Mobility and Volume
We were constantly on the move, swiftly transporting our scanning rig from one set to another. This agility was key in managing the sheer volume of scans required for the film. Each location brought its own set of challenges and opportunities, pushing us to adapt and innovate in our scanning process.
Flexibility and Adaptability
Our work on 'Napoleon' was characterised by flexibility and the ability to respond at a moment's notice. Whether it was adapting to sudden changes in weather, shifting filming schedules, or last-minute scene alterations, our team's readiness to adapt ensured that we kept pace with the dynamic nature of the film's production. This agility was instrumental in seamlessly integrating our 3D scanning work with the film's tight shooting schedule.
To faithfully recreate the epic scale of Napoleon's battlefields, we undertook countless drone flights. These aerial missions were critical in capturing vast landscapes and intricate set details, providing a bird's-eye view essential for the grandiose scenes. The data gathered from these flights were integral in creating expansive, yet historically accurate, battle sequences.
