Ep.1 – Gemini Man with Ben Gervais
Technical Supervisor Ben Gervais breaks down the groundbreaking workflow used to deliver the Will Smith feature Gemini Man at 120 frames per second, Native3D, HDR, and ATMOS. From a workflow perspective, this might just be the most challenging film ever delivered and Ben was key in making this happen.
