A rather beautiful multilayered sequence by New York VFX studio Artjail and video artist Marco Brambilla, currently installed at the flagship Vera Wang store in Beverly Hills (do pop in if you’re passing) where it plays as an offset reel on eight wall-mounted panels.
Of the elaborate production process, Artjail sez:
The film was originally shot on Red Camera then effected in Autodesk Flame. We created transitions stitching multiple takes into one seamless clip and digitally hand painted degradation techniques to the footage. Out of the Flame the footage was scanned to 35mm motion picture film, where it was further degraded in multiple passes using bleach and other photo chemical processes. Those results were then loaded back into the flame where we used elements of the multiple degraded film prints to create more specific degradation. The silhouettes and other visual cues were also something handled in Flame.
