Despite The Amazing Spider-Man having some of the best digital cinematography to date, and even in the face of the extensive digital post-production work that will be necessary on the sequel, Marc Webb appears to be having his next Spider-movie shot on film.
Here’s his first picture from the set, showing a not-so old school analog camera.
I doubt there will be a single frame that isn’t scanned and digitally altered, but Webb obviously wants something from photochemical film injected into “his look.”
What’s more, shooting on film will most likely mean we’re in for a 3D conversion.
Perhaps there’s just some special scenes being shot analog and we’ve been having our chain yanked a little?
Does anybody know who the cinematographer on this film is? I have absolutely no idea and I’d really like to know.
And here’s his second picture from the set, showing off some kind of something with Oscorp branding. Metal… and ropes… and, no, I have no idea what this is. At all.
Oscorp is going to be pretty important to the next Spider-Man film, and likely the one beyond. As far as we can gather there’s some kind of sorta-kinda-Sinister Six building arc going on, and Oscorp is the hub.
I wonder if Webb will keep this photo sharing up, day by day? Not a bad way to keep the plate spinning, really.
