the floor, and they are all different color
temperatures. So we break it down and
mimic each as best we can. The soft
boxes gave us the sky fill, which is a lot
cooler then the sun. So then we added
'sun' to the mix, and bounces that represented sunlight hitting the floor and
bouncing back."
Culliton says the sunlight
element was created using "six Arri
T12s with Quarter or Half CTO,
slightly dimmed and each rigged with a
motor-driven windmill. Additionally,
we hung six [Vari-Lite] VL3500s above
the train in pairs, slightly offset, and
reflected off a series of motorcontrolled, multi-mirror spinning rigs
that were suspended above the soft
boxes. Mirrors always seem to work
perfectly for a hot, fast, moving sunlight
hit. We also used some PRG Bad Boy
moving lights, pointed directly at the
train and running a kind of 'shuddering'
effect. All those elements, plus some
floor-based units [generating] effects

through the open door, hopefully create
a convincing feeling of movement as the
train barrels along."
At presstime, the filmmakers
were finishing up the digital intermediate at Technicolor's Tribeca West facility
in Los Angeles. There, supervising digital colorist Steve Scott - an ASC associate - and colorist Mike Sowa
employed Autodesk's Lustre 2013
color-correction platform to grade and
conform the movie in a DI room that
had been calibrated to exactly mimic
Scott's usual suite at Technicolor
Hollywood.
With postproduction nearing the
finish line, Schwentke harks back to
principal photography and says he is
especially pleased that Ballhaus pushed
for the anamorphic format. "I had only
shot spherical before this project, but I
absolutely fell in love with the anamorphic lenses," the director enthuses.
"Florian was right that [digitally
acquired images] can look too 'clean,'

and the frames are more interesting to
me with the refractions and impurities.
Anamorphic afforded me the kind of
wide shots I like to have in my movies,
while still staying close enough to the
actors to feel a connection to them."
