Stop-motion film making is a demanding art form. From the creation of “physical” sets and characters to the painstaking capture of movement, every scene demands attention to detail. The “Feast In A Fallen City” takes the time honored tradition of stop-motion film-making and gives it a jolt of modern technology. Using ZBrush and 3D printing technology to realize his designs, director Aron Bothman, a student at the California Institute of the Arts, took full advantage of everybody’s favorite “digital clay” while bringing his tale to life. Be sure to watch the “making of video” for a behind the scenes look at how it all came together.
