The Opening Titles for Offf Pescara & Webfest 2012 were created in a true Physalia spirit, striving to find new ways to move a camera in reality with a control only possible in CG. This time around, we created our biggest rig ever- a multi-sized orbital crane half human-powered, half computer controlled. The different sizes of our rig allowed us to engage in a multi-dimensional trip- from the macro shots taken inside the Lightbox, to the highest flights in the woods.
The Titles were shot in stopmotion with an infrared camera we hacked ourselves- more than 10.000 raw infrared images compose the final film. The final film has no CG imagery and was shot entirely in stopmotion.
