Black Panther

Wakanda Forever

Marvel Studios mega-blockbuster Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was designed as a celebration of the place and the stories that have become important elements of our popular culture. But it also was made to honor the late Chadwick Boseman, star of The Black Panther, whose absence the filmmakers knew would be palpable for viewers. Stereographer Jason Bomstein worked with the filmmakers and Marvel Studios to design the approach to bringing this story into the third dimension.

An introductory shot of the film was key to both honoring Bozeman and placing Wakanda Forever within its context in the MCU. At nearly 1800 frames (about one minute, fifteen seconds), the powerful shot was the kind that can push the 3D experience to its limits, which is just the kind of challenge Bomstein loves. Its length, its many shifting camera positions, and its inclusion of many characters’ faces – it all adds to the gravity of the shot but also introduces the possibility of distortions or parallax issues that could push the viewer out of the action.

Of course, Bomstein and the global team of artists were up to the job, combining the beauty and excitement of the 2D version with the awesomeness of the best stereoscopic features.
