Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience is a cosmic experience about nature, life and scientific discovery in which all elements come together to form Director Terrence Malick’s most original film to date. The documentary, set to open October 7, 2016, forges a fresh and mesmerizing life story of earth. Using the power of The IMAX Experience, the film merges our scientific knowledge of the universe with the indescribable mysteries and passion of art into a sensual trip that, for each person, becomes a uniquely personal discovery.
While the film undergoes final edits, we’re excited to share a behind-the-scenes look at how “the organic was combined with the digital” to create this giant screen work-of-art. From microphotography to supercomputer-generated visualizations, the production team captured the most immense cosmological events and the most bizarre life-forms ever witnessed.
Dan Glass, an award-winning Visual Effects Supervisor with over twenty years of experience on such films as The Matrix trilogy and Batman Begins, collaborated with Malick, supporting the Director’s grand vision. To dive into total visual unknowns, Glass and Malick created a laboratory focused intently on wide-ranging photographic experimentation. “These were literally chemical experiments we were doing,” explains Glass, “to see how various liquids, dyes, gasses and fluids might behave as we filmed them at high-speed. We used everything from gels and glass to smoke machines and fluid tanks to create a whole range of effects.” Working with real photographic material and scientific visualizations, the team enhanced the photography to produce some of the most memorable sequences in the film.
