There are more articles about the technology used here

We started shooting on R&S stages at Shepperton and then after 4 weeks moved to Island studio's on on the Isle of Man for a further 5 weeks

Initially we had 240' * 44' of green screen and it sorta grew from there :-)

Principal cameras were GVG/Thomson Vipers with Zeiss DigiPrimes

High speed photography was with pre-production Phantom HD's and later production models

Additional cameras used were the SI 2K Mini in a very early prototype form and the first F23 delivered in the UK



Simon and I used SpeedGrade to establish basic looks for the shoot.

These grades were loaded into a Truelight box to give use corrected viewing when we shot and then to keep the look during post.


Examples of the reference grades are to the left and below.
