Volga animated

Voilà longtemps que je voulais poster cette vieillerie de 2005 pour laquelle j'ai une affection particulière...Il sagit de la version animée du decors posté il y a belle lurette ici. C'était donc un exercice d'effets spéciaux co-realisé avec mon poto Fabulon aux gobelins. On s'était bien amusés à enregistrer passer le RER dans la gare d'à côté!

I wanted to post this old stuff from 2005 for a long time, for which I have a special affection. It's the animated version of the background posted here a while ago. It was a special effects exercice co-directed with my mate Fabulon at gobelins. We had good time recording the sound of the trains at the train station!

Bonjour Sylvain! This is absolutely amaaazing work! What materials/software/techniques did you use to do it - if you don't mind me asking? I remember you posting the background up a while ago and absolutely loved it. Pardon je suis désolé mais je ne parle pas le français bien! :)

Les gouttes sont t-elles bien calées sur le rail ? Je me le demande encore.

-Dave: it's all 2D, hand animation, the bg is painted differently for the lightnings, then comped on after effects.

-Romain: ben non car on s'était trompé avec les histoires de pixel carrés et d'interprétation de métrage. Et en fait, le décors lui même est stretché..tu t'rappelle?
-Shoo: de rien, content de te faire plaisir :)
