Encierro 3D

marzo 17, 2013 2 comentarios

El 21 de Junio se estrena en salas de cine una película muy esparada: una producción en 3D sobre los encierros de San Fermín.
Los que me seguís, sabéis que no publico opiniones ni positivas ni negativas de producciones que han hecho amigos y conocidos, o producciones 100% españolas.
No me voy a extender en las razones, pero ya sabéis que el hecho de que se pueda estrenar un proyecto en salas de cine es todo un récord, y sólo ese motivo merece mi total respeto, porque yo he estado ahí y sé lo difícil que es, independientemente de la calidad de la producción (no debería ser así, pero en este país es así).
Con esta película no haré una excepción, y me limitaré a informar de su fecha de estreno y por otro lado, a los responsables de la película, ya les haré llegar mi opinión con una llamada de teléfono.

Their first job for the movie industry was Lost in Space, where RF was used to create the stellar explosions. Since then, they have been present with their simulation software Realflow in films like The lord of the rings: The return of the king (for the lava flow of Mount Destiny); Ice Age 2; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; Chicken Little; 300; Poseidon; Matrix; Final Fantasy; X-Men 3; The Da Vinci Code and Primeval, among others.
