PIXEL HEAVEN 2013 – Retro entertaiment days

No computers were harmed during making this video ;).

Making of vimeo.com/65763564

Short made for Retro Entertainment Days 15-16/06/2013 / CDQ / Warszawa (PL) – pixelheaven.pl.

Creating the film wasn’t an easy task. Preparations took well over 2 months of my free time. It is surprising, but no work was done using CGI, only good oldschool stopmotion animation and motion control slider provided by Ditogear.
