While the concept is much older, of course, my first awareness of rear projection in filmmaking was James Cameron’s use of it in Aliens. I’ve not seen The Mandalorian, but through its production the idea has come a long way and been transformed into “the Volume”, an immersive set of LED screens generating adaptive environments via the Unreal Engine which can be filmed directly during performance.
