The video features three essential crew members from the film, who all helped bring the movie to life, including visual effects supervisor Stephane Cerutti, stereoscopic supervisor Evan Jacobs and executive producer Victoria Alonso. On the film’s presentation, Jacobs, in particular, said, “… what they’ve done at IMAX is that they have taken our movie and actually reprocessed it to actually reduce the noise, increase the sharpness and actually enhance the presentation on a shot-by-shot, artist-driven process.”
