Jewels uses a mixture of 2d animation, using assets from hand-crafted puppets, mixed with photos and live action to give a more ‘reach out and touch’ feel giving the movie  it’s own identity and separating it from 3D, 2D and stop motion.

Behold: the Dolni Morava Sky Walk – a wood and steel walkway craning over the edge of a cliff 1,100m above sea level in the Czech republic.

Created by Fránek Architects, the structure allows visitors to walk among the clouds or (weather permitting) lie prone on an open mesh floor at the top for vertiginous views of  the the Morava river and Krkonoše Mountains before descending a 100m long, 18-storey stainless steel tube slide (enclosed, but featuring windows) all the way back to the bottom.
