A source sent Marketsaw some interesting info regarding the filming of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
Jim here. Well this is a surprise to say the least! I knew it was strange that in the original ALICE IN WONDERLAND set photos that came up from England during the early days of shooting there were NO cameras set up in 3D configuration – just standard 2D setups. But I assumed that the shooting was preliminary and was merely being used to set the stage as it were for the stereographic professionals to take over.
Wrong. I just got word from a source in a position to know (first time source – but seems very trustworthy) that Tim Burton is NOT shooting AIW in 3D at all. Period. They intend on converting to 2D movie to 3D after the fact in post production!
So it will still be in 3D, they are just filming it as normal then converting it into 3D in post-production. Seems fine to me. Apparently filming in 3D can be a hassle and it may work out cheaper in the long run.
