This was our first short “Timelapsus”, an experimental work where we mixed 3D animation and photography using a motion control robot made by us.

The creation of the short, including the building of the motion control robot and the developing of its own software took 5 months. Overall, the work of just 3 people and a musician working all day!

It was filmed (99,9%) using a digital reflex photo camera. The timelapse shot is a 2700 photo sequence that was taken in 4 hours (realtime) and was designed previously with a 3D software. This motion control system permitted us to produce a moving time-lapse shot from day to night without cuts having 360º of freedom in camera rotations and any displacement across rails we wanted (we are currently developing the second motion control prototype).

Since this project we are working together in Physalia Studio. We hope we can continue making, developing and experimenting with visual effects as proffesionals in the future.

Enjoy and send us any comment!
