The best 3D animated film of plants that look like an old painting blowing in the wind you'll see this year.

at least the storyboards were easy to do.

Skip to the end on this one for the good stuff... the plants blowing around and time lapse n shizz... From the credits on this one, it looks like a whole bunch of people toiled on this one.. over 20 (I lost count...) Hmm.. ok so you (well not you... you and 20 more people...) take an old still life painting and spend over two and a half years making it 'come back to life' again. (I guess, because.. oh... arranging shopping carts in a big circle has already been done to death...)

Artists Rob and Nick Carter have breathed new life into a 17th Century Golden Age master by digitising it and subtly animating it. The result is "Transforming Still Life Painting After Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder's Vase With Flowers in a Window" - a fascinating piece of digital fine art that the result of 2.5 years and thousands of hours of work. Here Rob and Nick Carter's creative partners MPC (The Moving Picture Company) show how the work was created.

Wow, where to begin on this one. In exactly the last two years, working alone, I've made this little trailer:


(And a bunch of "filler" to pad out the remaining 1 hour 18 mins and 40 seconds of "Origin: A Call to Minds")

Hmm.. math time:

20 people X 2.5 years = 50 peopleyears / 2 years/film/person = 25 films

SO... they should really have 25 films... or 25*78 mins = 32.5 hours of plants that look like an old painting blowing in the wind. Wow... that's a lot of wasted potential here on this one... I hate to think how much money was actually spent making this...

:( they should have made it in 3D-3D while they were at it... :(
