It is an epic production that utilizes hundreds of visual effects shots in order to create the giant monsters and environments in the story.  Warner Brothers and Legendary called on Bob Bekian’s high tech Digital HD studios in Burbank to provide the production elements for several sequences. The shots called for the use of Bekian’s pre-lit green screens with specialized lighting and monitoring in order to do pre-visualization of how the sequence will look after post production.

“We have designed our facilities to use the latest technology in order to produce incredible images that tell compelling stories,” Bekian said.  The sequences shot at Loyal Studios employ the ARRI Alexa camera system.  The studio’s integrated control room that feeds the HD files into an array of technology does everything from immediately replacing the green screen background with various sample digital “plates,” to uploading the files to off-site Producers via a high speed internet connection.
