Each frame individually-coloured to bring out the full liquid motion of the film.
Many days of patient, mind-numbing, editing.
Much wailing, gnashing of teeth and teensy-weensy temper tantrums.
That’s the way we would have had to do it in the past.
Now, it’s just a question of applying a filter and, 20 minutes later, we have an animated version of One Minute Strain Theory that looks-and-feels like a relatively cheap cartoon, circa 1994.
If I was feeling generous, I’d say that was the look we were going for but, not being known for my magnimanity, it was more a question of fiddling with a few options and hoping for the best.
We can do better.
We strive for greatness.
But mainly we settle for “Yeah, that looks quite interesting”.
While animated versions are all-well-and-good, if you prefer to get your teeth into something a little more solid we’ve made the non-animated version of Strain Theory available.
We’re nice like that.
