Watch: IMAX Featurette on the Making of Malick's 'Voyage of Time'
"Really trying to make this ultimate combination of organic and digital." IMAX has released a fascinating featurette on the making of Terrence Malick's new documentary Voyage of Time, examining the creation of the universe leading all the way up to the origin of man. We've already featured two different trailers for the two versions of this movie, but this video dives into the processes and techniques they used to make the visuals in the movie. It's remarkable to see how they made some of these visuals using practical methods, including fluid tanks and smoke machines and other tricks. They tried to make this as realistic as possible, and it looks so so so beautiful. Malick is going all out with the visuals here with great attention to detail. I really can't wait to experience this in its full IMAX glory. "We deserve to pause sometimes and just reflect."
Here's the new IMAX featurette on Terrence Malick's Voyage of Time, direct from IMAX's YouTube:
The unfolding of the universe takes place before your eyes, in this experience for the senses, mind and soul. A labor of passion by director Terrence Malick (Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life), Voyage of Time: Life’s Journey is an exploration into our planetary past and a search for humanity’s place in the future. Humming with the energy of nature itself, the film melds innovative special effects with awe-inspiring footage from around the globe, in search of what lasts, what endures through time’s changing scenes. There are two versions of Malick's new documentary - an IMAX experience that has a running time of 45 minutes, and this full-length version titled Voyage of Time: Life's Journey. Terrence Malick's Voyage of Time will be initially released in IMAX theaters starting October 7th later this fall, but we're not sure when the full version will arrive (after it premieres at TIFF & Venice). Stay tuned for updates.
