We used a screen with a total area of 204 square meters, with a total resolution exceeding 11k. Rendering the final image of what is happening in real time, optimizing the scenes took a lot of time during production – this was taken into account at the stage of building the production plan of the project. It was also important that the screen was installed on the ice arena. These are additional conditions on the scene, in the form of hypertrophied reflections on the object and a change in the overall composition
