Our Photogrammetry arrays utilize up to 180 – 50 megapixel full-sensor DSLR cameras. This combination delivers maximum resolution and dynamic range.

Our customized lighting captures both Specular and Cross-Polarized imagery, which guarantees accurate lighting/reflection placement. We also offer HDRI’s for greater range of luminosity.

All Photogrammetry arrays are in a private bay; only the Talent need be inside the array circumference. The scan tech is on the outside, thus insuring safe social distancing.

“Sony Imageworks has been fortunate enough to work together with Karl and the wonderful team at Gentle Giant on many films. They’ve created original character designs, built beautiful Maquettes, and were responsible for the digital scanning on films such as Polar Express, Spiderman trilogy and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. I’ve always been impressed by their professionalism, enthusiasm, and the level of quality they bring to everything they create. It’s been a wonderful collaboration and I look forward to working with this talented group on many more future projects.”
