Elbow Saves Christmas in 3D

The ‘Elbow Saves Christmas’ animation will be part of the Santa Grotto experience in Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City (both in UK). Each child in the audience is featured in the film. Their pictures will be displayed throughout the story, watching Elbow save Santa’s presents from the good-elf-turned-bad Fumble. As in any good "4D" or "5D" show, there will be additoinal elements to the experience, including wind effects, light and ‘elf dust.’

The animation runs for seven minutes and was conceived by Andrew Jenkinson and its vStream (Dublin, Ireland) using their Mirror 3D Personalisation Software.

Hyperstereoscopic Timelapse Video

A new "Hyperstereoscopic Timelapse Video" released in 3D by its author, Takashi Sekitani (Japan) in December 2011 remind us that some words request some explanations:

"Hyperstereosopic" means that a 3D video is taken with an interaxial distance between cameras far larger the the human eye's distance of 65mm.In the 3D video here under, cameras were placed apart about 3 to 15 meters (10 to 50 feet). With that kind of setup, the world is  seen through the eyes of a giant and thus appears as a miniature world. This effect is called "Dwarfism". Symetrically, "hypostereoscopic" occurs when the video is taken  with cameras only a few millimeters apart giving an effect called "Gigantism", as if the world was seen through a mouse' eyes.

"Timelapse" is the opposite of slow-motion video: you take one picture every second or every minute, and you replay it at the usual 24 frames per second. All movements are accelerated several times so you can observe the world as if time is flowing far faster thant it is.
