Ewan McGregor recalled his shooting in the Star Wars trilogy, where he had to work almost completely alone for months. There were no partners on the set, so McGregor’s character had to talk to computer-drawn characters. This greatly exhausted the actor.
“The further we went during the filming of the trilogy, the less people surrounded me. I was in front of the chroma key for weeks or months, speaking into the air. It was hard,” Obi-Wan Kenobi ‘s actor told Screenrant.
In the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, a different filming technology was used, which facilitated the work of the actor.
“We feel like we are there. When you are in a ship, the stars fly past you and seem to be something real. I feel the spirit of the old Hollywood here – it reminds me of the movies of the 20s and 30s, when they had a set of scenery. The actor acted out the scene and there was another actor with him, ”said the leading actor.
StageCraft technology allows you to keep the effect of the presence of other actors on the set, thanks to special video panels.
