THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN
Superhero Hype has a "set" visit report. "The motion capture stage is first and foremost extremely comfortable--warm, with dense, sound proof carpeting for the various capture suit wearing actors," they write of the New Zealand motion capture stage that appoximates the one used by director Steven Speilberg in Los Angeles for principle "photography." This space, known as "The Volume," also contains rudimentary set peices for the actors to interact with. The process allowed the director to shoot his actors in 32 days with a minimal crew, but producer Peter Jackson notes that "it's not cheaper than live action. Not at all."
Directed by Steven Spielberg, release date: December 23, 2011

"That was one thing but the other thing was the fact that the web-shooters were able to dramatize Peter's intellect and I thought that was really cool. ... It was in the comics and we have a different design but it's a cool element to have. It's not something we over-use or over-exploit. To me, it's something I remember from when I was a kid and thinking 'It would be cool if I could build those.'"
