Astigmatismo

Making Of

Images

"A boy, having lost his glasses, can only see one thing in focus at a time. His sight gets attracted by the sounds that surround him. He will have to explore a blurry world of unknown places and strange characters."

“Astigmatismo” is a short-film about the feeling of being lost. This feeling is created thanks to an extreme blur effect, leaving only a very tiny space in focus. The focus shifts and moves rhythmically, synchronized with the sounds and the music, revealing a constantly changing landscape.

The optical effect of blur is at the core of the film, so to make this effect as beautiful and authentic as possible "Astigmatismo" is shot in a 5-level multiplane using a special lens. The animation involves cut-out marionettes and paint on glass. Everything is entirely made by hand and there are no post production effects.

It is, however, computer-assisted. The camera and the lens were entirely controlled by computer making it possible to adjust the focus and the depth of field with extreme precision, allowing for a variety of focus effects that wouldn't have been possible to create otherwise. In this way, the film combines old school animation techniques with recent advances in camera technology.

"Un niño, tras perder sus gafas, no consigue ver más de una cosa enfocada al mismo tiempo. Su vista se ve atraída por los sonidos que le rodean. Tendrá que recorrer un mundo desenfocado de lugares desconocidos poblados por extraños personajes."

"Astigmatismo" es un cortometraje sobre la sensación de estar perdido. Esta sensación está recreada gracias a un efecto de desenfoque extremo, dejando solo un espacio mínimo con nitidez. El punto de enfoque cambia y se desplaza rítmicamente, sincronizado con los sonidos y la música, descubriendo un paisaje constantemente cambiante.

El efecto óptico de desenfoque es la clave de este cortometraje y, para hacer que este efecto sea lo más bello y auténtico posible, "Astigmatismo" está rodado usando una estructura multiplano de cinco niveles y fotografiado con una lente especial. La animación consiste en marionetas de papel y pintura sobre cristal. Todo está hecho a mano y no hay ningún efecto de pos-producción.

Sin embargo, el rodaje es asistido por ordenador. La cámara y el objetivo están totalmente controlados por ordenador haciendo que los más precisos ajustes de enfoque y profundidad de campo sean posibles, permitiendo una variedad de efectos que no se hubieran podido hacer de otro modo. De esta manera, el corto combina las técnicas de animación de la vieja escuela con los recientes avances en tecnología de cámaras digitales.

"Un enfant, ayant perdu ses lunettes, n’arrive à voir nettement qu’une seule chose à la fois. Son regard est toujours attiré par les sons qui l’entourent. Il devra traverser un monde flou de lieux inconnus peuplés par des étranges personnages."

"Astigmatismo" est un court-métrage à propos de la sensation d'être perdu. Cette sensation est crée grâce à un effet de flou extrême, en laissant nette juste un espace très petit. La netteté change et se déplace rythmiquement, synchronisé avec les sons et la musique, en découvrant un paysage toujours changeant.

L'effet optique du flou est au cœur de ce film, donc pour rendre cet effet aussi beau et authentique que possible, "Astigmatismo" est tourné dans une structure multiplane de cinq niveaux et en utilisant un objectif spécial. L'animation est réalisé en marionnettes de papier découpé et peinture sur verre. Tout est fait à la main et il n'y a aucun effet de postproduction.

C'est, quand-même, assisté par ordinateur. La caméra et l'objectif sont totalement contrôlées par ordinateur en donnant la possibilité de corriger la netteté et le profondeur de champ avec une précision extrême, en permanentant de créer une variété d'effets qui n'auraient été possibles autrement. De cette façon, le film mélange les vielles techniques d'animation avec les derniers progrès en technologie de caméras numériques.
