    Thanks for the news and links, Bob.
    I went to Bourges a couple of times, long time ago, and watched the full film documentary: a huge work.
    I will read and watch the making-of with the same interest.

    Hello Olivier,

    You are welcome!

    The more investigated Denis movie the more interesting it got.There are so much details in the movie that are not clearly visible at first sight. And yes a huge work specially because he made it alone.......

    Enjoy the making- of!

    Greetings

    Bob

    pretty mind blowing, presume a lot of the photo geo elements were retopod to make them manageable and appeared to be different LOD versions for different shots, seemed to be no bump or normal on a lot of shots, though I can understand why, loading 8k maps on top of all that geo would probably be impractical, loved the trees and landscaping, thought birds were weakest point

    Whats under the Hood ?

    Lots of questions I wonder what was the Photo-gram App?

    Is Lightwave layout used at any stage?

    a small addition would be enlighten to this superb project!

    What a work to accomplish alone! I enjoyed the film. If I ever get to one day visit that place, it will feel as if I have already been there. Hopefully on a sunny day, when I can enjoy the shade of the trees, and contemplate how many polygons it took.

    Congratulations DP!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the film, Denis. A lot of hard work for sure and well worth it too! I'll be checking out the "making of" too soon. I always like to see the movie and then check out the making stuff.

    Once again, Congrats!!!
