Hyperion - The Lord of Light, according to Greek mythology.
This movie is created by Anton Claesson, Magnus Dahlstrand, Johan Lithvall, Peter StJames and Henrik Östergaard, all students at Hyper Island, Motion Graphics 2011.
Our mission was to explore animation, and we choose to skip all the fancy 3D and use analogue techniques instead.
We shot the movie in the night, combining stop motion, time lapse and long exposure shots. All the light is made using small led-flash lights, except for the two last scenes where the original light is enhanced a bit digitally.
The camera we used is a Canon 550d with the Canon 18-135is lens, and the average exposure time is around 7 seconds.
The music is "Your Hand In Mine" by Explosions in the Sky (explosionsinthesky.com)
