BLADE RUNNER revisited >3.6 gigapixels from françois vautier on Vimeo.
Boredom affects us all in strange ways. Take me for instance, I will flip through countless internet pages of
How the video was made:
first step: the "picture" of the film. I extracted the 167,819 frames from 'Blade Runner' (final cut version 1h51mn52s19i). Then I assembled all these images to obtain one gigantic image of colossal dimensions: a square ofapproximately 60,000 pixes on one side alone, 3.5 gigapixels (3500 million pixels)
Second step: an illusion. I placed a virtual camera above this big picture. So what you see is like an illusion, because contrary toappearances there is only one image. It is in fact the relative movement of the virtual camera flying over this massive image which creates the animated film like a film in front of a projector.Via io9 (Linkage)
