Johnny Depp hits the red carpet at the premiere of his new movie Transcendence on Thursday evening (April 10) at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles.
In much of the film, Johnny appears as a hologram and director Wally Pfister recently chatted with THR about how filming worked.
“Rebecca [Hall] would act on set with an projected image of Johnny, and Johnny was in a dark booth with a camera on him, on the same set,” he said. “So the actors were able to perform together and we captured that live, in camera.”
“We wanted him to have dimension, more like a hologram, which is why it became a visual effect,” he added.
