This is your semi-regular reminder that CGI is at or beyond the point of absurdity, that everything on the Internet is fake, that there is no spoon, etc.
Because seriously. Look at that. Look at it.
I think this is the first time I’ve watched a video like this and wandered right on past the uncanny valley, only to plummet backwards into it when I realized — about halfway through, mind you — that it was rendered.
[Cue obligatory comment from the dude who rendered a snowman in Maya one time about how the specularity on his ear lobe is 2% too high or something.]
This render was made by Chris Jones, who previously spent 8 years creating the wonderful one-man short film, The Passenger.
