One of the most visually amazing features of ‘Ready Player One‘ was the virtual world of The OASIS and a new featurette for the film has shown how Steven Spielberg brought this digital playground to life. Ernest Cline‘s novel revolved around a virtual reality world where everyone went to escape their day to day troubles, and almost 60 percent of the movie took place within this digital world.
With such a realistic CGI paradise needing to be made it was an amazing piece of work to translate this onto the big screen, and this new behind-the-scenes video shows exactly how it was done.
You can see how work was done on the motion capture stage right here:
As you can see here, we see the stage, the motion capture technology, and some of how it ended up on the big screen. Clocking in at just over a minute and a half they don’t have time to bring viewers through the complete process, but it is a good tease as to how the film was built from the ground up.
To be able to incorporate not only this much CGI in a film but the motion capture aspects as well is pretty exciting to see.
The home release of the movie is set to have over 90-minutes of special features and extended clips which will have more details like this one for fans of Speilberg’s work to check out! I’m hoping that more behind-the-scenes videos of how the special effects were created are included as well.
