Derailed

Derailed directed by Mikael Hafstrom features extensive train sequences set in Chicago.
The film was to be shot in the UK. To achieve complete realism it was essential to tie the lighting of the train interior to the scenery passing by the windows.
The idea was to light the train set using projectors and to achieve the effect in camera by using rear-screen – something that Peter Biziou, the cinematographer was very interested in exploring.
After developing a previs to work out the camera angles inside the train, Olaf went to Chicago to shoot the plates using a 180 degree panoramic camera set up. Plates were stabilized and stitched into seamless panoramas and then fed through a multi-channel projection set-up using 2 or sometimes 3 rear screen projectors and up to 14 lighting projectors.
