Hello friends! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and lazy Sunday! It’s Monday morning here, but as mentioned in my previous post, it’s a national holiday, so I’m using today to catch up on all the writing I need to do.
I’ve also been reading my new Star Wars books and thought this little tidbit of information was cool to share regarding Rey and the mirror cave. I’ve read many people’s thoughts on the mirror cave sequence, and most of them were wrong, lol (according to this book). And while I love reading the ideas and speculation from fans, I prefer the facts regarding trivia. Pablo Hidalgo is one of the leading professionals in that regard, so I defer to his book:
How they shot the mirror cave scene in The Last Jedi
For the mirror cave scene in The Last Jedi, special effects studio One of Us planned and filmed the scene using Daisy Ridley and a multi-digital camera rig. It was set up so that one take could “ripple” through multiple images of Rey.
My knowledge of camera rigging is limited, but I wonder if they employed a similar technique to the one used in the filming of The Matrix, where multiple camera rigs were set up to film the “bullet time” sequences in the movie.
Interesting, am I right?
I’ll be doing a lot more of these interesting tidbits of information as I go.
Catch you in the comments hopefully and stay safe out there my friends!
