For the past few years we have been developing fully immersive systems, converting video into 3D models. We can also do this with moving movies. The work we have been working on for a very well known brand, is all protected by NDA’s, but we will post more information when we get time.
We have created a full 3D model of the Zoolander set, using the images we took on the rig. This could be imported into any 3D software and manipulated anyway you wish, including the background being removed leaving just Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson jumping.
On this example, we converted this test dance shot into 3D to allow the background to be removed.
