Before the year is over, movie fans may experience a new level of immersive entertainment with the first feature length film shot entirely in Barco Escape.
In an article recently published by the Hollywood Reporter, movie director Scott Waugh confirmed that he is in preproduction on the first film that will be shot entirely in Barco's multi-screen, panoramic movie format. Waugh is the director behind Act of Valor and Need for Speed.
The currently untitled film is an outdoor survival story that will be shot on location with a single camera using wide-angle lenses, according to Barco Escape's vice president of studio partnerships, Jeff Wilk. Produced through Waugh's Rock Pile Productions, the movie is in the final stages of a distribution deal, with producers anticipating release by the end of the year.
"I couldn't be more excited as a director to use the new canvas of Barco Escape to tell my story," said Waugh in a statement provided to The Hollywood Reporter. "The theatrical experience needs to be more immersive than ever, and Barco Escape's technology is the answer that opens up infinite creative possibilities. I feel privileged to be the first director to use this format in its entirety for my film."
