  2. Here's our latest test with camera projection and timelapse explained.

    Clean final shot is here:

    This technique allows to create timelapse shots where the camera is moving in such way that is impossible to achieve in the real world.

    In this technique, the static timelapse shot is projected onto a recreated 3D geometry and the virtual camera is created to film the scene.

    The geometry may be either recreated manually, generated basing on DEM models, LIDAR data or photogrammetrically.

    Many thanks to Greg Downing @ XREZ studio for inspirations.

    Rebirth has been already in production for almost 2 years and we did put enormous amount of work and heart into this project. The work is getting near the end. Now we need your help to complete it and make it widely available to the public.

    We have just started an indiegogo crowd funding campaign that we hope to help us gather funds necessary for finalizing the post and releasing the film. You can support us by spreading the word, donating, preordering the Collector's Edition or even more.

    Please support the project at igg.me/at/rebirth-film
    Please spread the word. We count on you.

    Below you see a quick timelapse of scanning we did with EKG Baukultur (ekg-baukultur.com) almost 2 years ago for the film.
    That's the first use of laser scanning visuals as a mean of expression in the film and probably also the first time laser scanning process was timelapsed :)

    Read more about the film below.


    “Rebirth” is an experimental short film by Patryk Kizny, a visual artist recognized for pioneering motion-controlled timelapse cinematography and exploring innovative imaging techniques.

    “Rebirth” is a metaphysical story exploring human desire for transcendence and achieving immortality through creation.

    The film’s distinctive qualities are based on cross-discipline visual approach, an innovative use of emerging technologies and as such the film has no precedence in the history of visual arts and cinema.

    Visual Innovation

    To some extent, the film builds on previous Kizny’s experience with motion-controlled and HDR timelapse used in famous “The Chapel” (2010) or “The Dreams Come True” (2011).

    Yet, with this short film Kizny steps far beyond typical visual means such as live action cinematography or time lapse, reaching for such innovative imaging techniques as laser scanning, used for the first time in film as a mean of expression and point cloud-based visuals combined with motion capture or photogrammetry.

  4. A sneak peek at direct support for full resolution LIDAR scans coming soon in PFTrack 2012.3.

  5. “Rebirth” is a philosophical story of human desire for transcendence and a Faustian dream of achieving immortality through creation at a symbolic level. It is a story of the cycle of life - from birth of an idea through its materialisation, adolescence to decay and finally - a rebirth.

    “Rebirth” is a philosophical story of human desire for transcendence and a Faustian dream of achieving immortality through creation at a symbolic level. It is a story of the cycle of life - from birth of an idea through its materialisation, adolescence to decay and finally - a rebirth.

    Through “Rebirth” Kizny continues the endeavour started back in 2010 in a short film “The Chapel” (vimeo.com/16414140), set in a unique space of an abandoned Protestant temple in Zeliszow, Poland, supposedly designed by a famous German architect Carl Langhans, known for the Brandenburg Gate and numerous other famous designs in Europe.

    “Rebirth” develops the subjects further on a multiple new layers - starting from the idea and the narrative to an impressive range of applied visual techniques. In the film, besides of “standard” cinematography of dance scenes in the final act and motion-controlled HDR timelapse visuals known from “The Chapel”, used to render the glory of the temple as perceived by the artist, Kizny in an innovative way makes use of laser scans of the building directly as a means of expression and a novel element of film language. Through this technique the audience can witness the process of creation of an architectonic object as imagined by a genius architect long before the object is materialised. An industry insider will trace lots of other techniques applied, such as particle simulations, motion capture or photogrammetry.

    However, this project is is much more than the film.

    As far as “The Chapel” was intended as an artistic tribute and a testament, it turned out to be a salvation for the abandoned decaying chapel, triggering a chain of events: from grabbing wide public and media attention, raising the awareness of the temple, through establishment of an independent foundation “Twoje Dziedzictwo” (twojedziedzictwo.pl) taking over the temple and carrying out the first work towards preserving and renovating the building.
    “Rebirth” touches very universal subjects posing a question of responsibility of the mankind for its history and for the future.

    Although the work on the film spanned over a 4-year period and the first steps had been executed while the future of the temple was not clear, today it becomes a proof for artist’s belief that through art and vision one can impact and transform reality.
