Budget was 45k euro - for the shoot. Visual effects budget was a grand total of zeeero. I designed Blinky, modeled him in 3D and played both the his voice and the body mocap performance. And did most of the VFX. Thankfully all footage of me in the skintight mocap suit has been permanently destroyed.
Visual effects were completed over a period of 9 months, of hell. There's a reason why you don't see too many wet CG characters in movies even with 100 million dollar budgets. It's really, really hard.
Music composed by Mattia Cupelli - "Ascending"

Imagine to stay in the middle of a wonderful place where you can create reality using your imagination.
Nature can be compared to an ancient dimension without time and space. It doesn't need any explanation, just take your time and explore colours, feelings, memories. Sometimes this is videography.

This is the newest teaser for "In Saturn's Rings", a giant screen space film for IMAX®, giant screen and fulldome theaters distributed by BIG & Digital, coming summer 2014. This DIY, not-for-profit all-volunteer film is from Greensboro, NC, USA filmmaker Stephen van Vuuren with tons of help from volunteer image processors around the world.
Created entirely from real photographs using photoanimation and multiplane photoanimation. No computer-generated images, painting, cloning, tweening, morphing, texture maps, camera projection or 3D models used.
Music for teaser is stock music from Neumann Films but has been customized to fit. neumannfilms.net/. Please back our Kickstarter (http://qr.net/saturn) to help us get the music we need so it can be seen in the widest number of theaters.
To watch in 4K, choose "original" under quality settings (you need a fast computer and a 4K monitor to view it full rez).
The film is 100% created using only flat 2D photographs (often hundreds or thousands per frame) stitched together for massive hundred megapixel+ resolutions that are scaled and zoomed using techniques developed by the filmmaker, based on Ken Burns and 2.5D photo animation processes.
A computer is actually not even required to do this - it could all be done exactly using photoanimation techniques from 100 years ago (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoani...).
