Intel Studios' Volumetric Video Gives 'Grease' New Life 40 Years Later

January 15, 2019 -- At CES 2019, Randal Kleiser, director of the iconic 1978 movie “Grease,” and Diego Prilusky, Intel Studios’ general manager, revealed a teaser and first look at an immersive experience by Intel and Paramount Pictures celebrating the film’s 40th anniversary.

In December, Kleiser and more than 20 dancers filmed a re-creation of one of the movie’s memorable musical numbers, “You’re the One That I Want,” at Intel Studios in Los Angeles. Captured by the studio’s 96 high-definition 5K cameras, the dance scene will come alive in “volumetric” video, a format that enables the viewer to experience the content from any given point of view.

Intel Studios’ 10,000-square-foot-geodesic dome is the world’s largest immersive media hub. Moviemakers film scenes inside the dome from all directions at once, a technique called “volumetric capture.” Data captured by each camera is shaped into voxels (think 3D pixels), which render the virtual environment in multi-perspective 3D. It allows audiences to view a scene from any angle – even the middle of the action.

“It’s exciting to be able to do something with this new cutting-edge technology,” Kleiser said.

Intel and Paramount plan to release an immersive experience based on the full song “You’re the One That I Want” this year for PCs and virtual reality headsets.
