This weekend I had the privilege of taking my family to go see James Gunn's new Marvel epic Guardians of the Galaxy. The summer blockbuster has been hugely anticipated by both Marvel fans and science fiction fans world-wide. I'm happy to say that the movie did not disappoint expectations. In this behind the scenes b-roll video we get an up-close look at how the movie was shot.
Guardians of the Galaxy was shot with an Arri Alexa XT Plus camera system using Zeiss Master Prime Lenses, although it was also released on IMAX with shifting aspect ratios to better immerse the viewer into the IMAX and movie experience. I'm curious why James Gunn decided to have the shifting aspect ratios for the massive theater and not use the IMAX cameras. Budget issues or maybe just a directorial preference perhaps? I'm hoping that they will release how they did some of the amazing visual special effects for the movie soon done by MPC Studios.
