Dimension is well positioned to continue its remarkable growth.
We spoke with Anthony Kramer, VFX Production Coordinator at Digital
Dimension in LA.
IRIDAS: How has Digital Dimension made its
mark in the industry?
I think first and foremost it has been our passion and dedication in
creating photo-real visual effects. But in this business, that's not
always enough! In order for us to stay on the forefront, we've been
pioneers in adapting cutting-edge technologies into our workflow. We are
constantly challenging ourselves and the technology to be more efficient
and organized than the rest of the pack.
IRIDAS: What are some of the highlights of
your recent work?
We did over 200 shots for the Zathura. Some of these were very
complex comps with many layers of practical miniature elements mixed
with CG elements which we had created. We also worked on Magnificent
Desolation: a Tom Hanks produced IMAX film. This was a particularly
challenging not only because of the size of the IMAX format but it was
also presented in stereoscopic 3D. This meant we had to do every effect
twice, once for each eye!
IRIDAS: What's it like when you see your
work in a movie theater?
That is one of the most rewarding parts of this job. It's great to
see how all the hard work we did fits in - and contributes to - the
story as a whole: whether in a movie theater, or even on DVD. And it's
almost as nice to see your name when the credits roll at the end!
