Gravity Case Study

  • The movie was written by Alfonso Cuarón and his son Jonás they attempted to develop the project at Universal Pictures, however, it stayed in development for several years. After the rights to the project were sold, the project was then purchased and distributed by Warner Bros.

  • Surprisingly, Sandra Bullock nor George Clooney were first choices for this film as numerous different actresses read for Sandra's part, moreover, Robert Downey Jr. was primarily the male lead before leaving the project and being replaced by Clooney.
Below are the other cast members:
  1. Ed Harris
  2. Orto Ignatiussen 
  3. Paul Sharma 
  4. Amy Warren .
  5. Basher Savage 
These cast member were mainly voices as Bullock and Clooney were the main characters, who were actually seen in this film.

  • David Heyman and Alfonso Cuarón himself produced Gravity. Alfonso appears to be a triple threat as he co-wrote, produced and directed this film. 

  • Gravity had a production budget of $100 million and was filmed digitally on multiple Arri Alexas. Principal photography on the film began in late May 2011.Live elements were shot at Pinewood and Shepperton Studios in the United Kingdom. The landing scene was filmed at Lake Powell, Arizona. Visual effects were supervised by Tim Webber at Framestore in London. The 3D was designed and supervised by Chris Parks. The majority of the 3D was created through stereo rendering the CG at Framestore with the rest post converted.

  • Lighting was a big issue for them, the problem with light in outer space is that it tends to extremes of brightness or total darkness. Visual effects supervisor Tim Webber and director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki tackled this problem by creating something they called the Light Box. In which   Images were projected onto the walls, including the planet Earth, the International Space Station , and the distant stars “giving the actor the perspective of what their character was seeing,” Webber says “It was primarily so we could reflect the appropriate light on them, but it had the double benefit of being a visual reference for them, too.”

  • Gravity was released in 3D and IMAX 3D on October 4, 2013. The film's release coincided with the beginning of World Space Week. The film changed its original scheduling in November 21, 2012, to the 2013 release.

  • Gravity has grossed a worldwide total of $528,222,000.
