Trailer de la película “Encierro Bull Running in Pamplona”

  • ‘Encierro’, una espectacular película en 3D de los San Fermines

The web RTVE has issued some advanced information in a promotion of the film Encierro – Bull Running in Pamplona. This film shows the running of the bulls and the Sanfermin fiestas in 3D and it has been listed for the Goya Awards of 2013 in 8 categories. According to what the web page states, this “spectacular feature-length documentary narrates the running of the bulls from the viewpoint of the runners who take part in the annual event in Pamplona during the fiestas of San Fermín (from the 7th to the 14th of July) /…/ with Miguel Ángel, Paco, Miguel, Joe and Noel, five fanatics of the running of the bulls and who allow us an intimate look at what it means to them to run in the event as they share their reasons, their fears and their experiences.” In addition, we can see some of the images used to promote the feature film and which we can absorb, but which belong to the work of the RTVE national channel.

The critical reviews from RTVE about the content states that he Running of the Bulls is a “documentary full of action and emotion, filled with tension but also of beauty, with a spectacular narrative sequence and some images never before captured and all provided by the latest cameras of High Velocity 3D. A special camera was also used which was hung at a height of 270 meters across the center of Estafeta Street as it filmed the bulls and runners below. In order to transmit the spectacular images in the most impressive manner possible, the film was shot in 3D stereoscope, which proved to be a technological challenge for the cameramen. In addition, due to the fact that the running only happens over eight days annually and the difficulties presented by the 3D technology, the shooting was carried out over the years 2009, 2010, 2011 y 2012.”

The film has been produced by Enrique Urdánoz, Manuel Cristóbal, María Cabanas, Salvador Puig and Jose Luis Rubio from D4D Ingeniería Visual and REC, under the director, Olivier Van der Zee.
