Thanks so much for this, Alex.
The amount of work looks crazy. I wonder how many people were working only on the planification of the shots.
I'm gonna watch it again!

Dammit, can't believe I never heard of this film until now. Gonna have to wait till it's out on DVD. Anyway, well done, very envious.

I watched this film today with my girlfriend, it was one of the most beautiful movies I'd seen in a long time! Fantastic compositing in particular. I looked for your name in the credits but it rolled too fast so I couldn't quite catch it

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

Yeah Jim -

I did so many different things that its hard to break down specifically - I painted alot of distant backgrounds in Photoshop for example the Eiffel Towers and buildings and skies and crap - Also alot of set extensions of the clock tower, and little things like snow on trains and roofs and windows.

Another cool thing I did was paint the Greek fresco on the ceiling train station of Promethius in the clouds - I had to make it look all painterly, as if it was done in oils

The most technically difficult shot was the Final Shot of the movie. The long shot in the party, and for that one, they messed up the camera at the end when they physically shot it - They asked me to rebuild the entire room that the robot was sitting in. What I ended up doing was create low poly geo of the room, dresser, bed, window, and then repainted the room in PS from scratch. It wasn't shaders, It was a giant matte painting of close up furniture, carpet, wallpaper - It was ridiculous...I painted it in 12k, and in the end, you can barely tell its a fake room. The far stuff is easier because it can be covered in fog and whatnot, but that room had to be perfect. It was crazy.


THanks guys
