Projectors in ‘Oblivion’

by A. Journey

Usually when you see behind-the-scenes footage of big movies today, you see actors against a lot of blue and green screen. It’s neat that all of these different programs can make up such realistic environments, but some of that “movie magic” is lost when you know it’s all created inside a computer. Not so with Oblivion, however–at least not all of it. One of the most beautiful locations in the film is the tower in the middle of the clouds, and as it happens, it wasn’t created with green screen, but with real-life fancy projectors. You know, how old movies used to do it. Check out the feature below, and read more about it with the film’s DP Claudio Miranda (the same guy who shot Life of Pi).
