Pre-production began back in April of 2008. Actual renders began in the Summer of 2008. Most of the clips were worked on during my spare time secretly. Most of these are super long shots, unfortunately this "early decision" made production longer than it should have been. Regardless I continued the render because they looked beautiful.... I basically spent 1.5 years making this happen.
The renders are separated into 2: Diffusion layer and Alpha for the effects later on.
During the Summer of 2009, I began working on the VFX work. This is where all these landscapes begin to bloom into color. Here again, what made me think twice was that I needed to work in 12 bit. It was the craziest days of my life.
Either way, it's now complete.
The sound was designed using Absynth 4. Initially the plan was to compose a dramatic, cinematic music track, but as I began post-production, I began to see other possibilities. I instead decided that it was fair to produce a simple, tonal resonance based on the landscapes themselves. Of course this took some time and math, but the sound's the result.
Regardless of all, the original audio is 5.1 surround.
