Here is the Script:
Lets take the opening scenes of Hugo, of course the film bagged Academy awards, In the scene that starts by following the kid (Hugo), carries on and on for some time with many complex movements and dynamics and finally reaches at a decent close frame.
Yes, in the making it was revealed that it was 3 different boys acting the scene.
What I ask here is an easier way, or maybe easiest among the lot (in the sense of both production cost and human resource/effort) to imitate a continuous shot effect using multiple cameras.
I have heard from my friend (a professional CG artist) that it can be done using 3D techniques. It involves the creation of the entire stage (the area where the scene occurs in real film) in the 3D virtual space. and then intelligently filling up the cuts between cameras using this 3D virtual fillers.
I am really open to that idea. But, are there any real life (no virtual/3D) techniques to establish a continuous looking scene?
