Emmy award winning director Marc Shaffer weaves together the unbelievable story of photographer Eadweard Muybridge with contributions from Academy Award winning Gary Oldman. Muybridge’s images of running horses instantly transformed the camera into a machine of unmatched powers of perception and persuasion, and set the course for the birth of cinema.
What we did
Marc Shaffer approached us directly to create the titles and many of the vfx and graphical elements of his documentary. We worked closely with the Emmy award winning director to visualise some potentially difficult scenes. We used parallax animation to visualise the stereoscope and worked with live action elements to create the titles.
