Canadian filmmaker Scott Portingale has released a new short mixed media film titled “Infinitude.” Created by hand using an assortment of camera techniques, the film tells the story of the evolution of matter and energy over time.
“The visuals were shot in camera by photographing traditional props using time-lapse, stop-motion, and high-speed photography and then composited together,” Portingale tells PetaPixel. “A mix of old photography methods and digital editing.”
Everything was shot with a RED Epic and Canon DSLRs. Here are some behind-the-scenes images of the creation process:
