The Green Hornet

Columbia Pictures

This 2011 film adaptation of the 1930’s iconic radio broadcast of these two heroic characters was not only a challenge to work on, but also a fun project as well. To be part of a movie, which dives into a piece of history and recreates it for the modern audiences reigniting a spark of cultural interest, was pivotal. In essence, the industry used 3D as a medium to reinvent a proverbial bridge from which to reduce the generation gap between what was “cool” into what is “cool” once more.

Creative Analysis:
We were brought in to help with some of the conversion work on ‘The Green Hornet’. As a direct result of the incredible efficiency we displayed and the high caliber of work that our studio generated, we then were asked to convert an even larger section than originally awarded of the film. Being able to turn around this amount of work within a very limited span of time, while never once having to compromise on the quality of the work, left a lasting impression with our client.” Matt Akey, Producer

“It was a challenge to deliver the highest-quality conversion in a compressed timeframe for this film, but our highly-trained and very proficient team managed to exceed expectations even when faced with shots that contained thousands of glass particles and transparent reflections. Visual effects such as these carried a new level of complexity, a challenge we faced head-on, successfully engineering new techniques without incurring extra man-hours.”
