    yeah. great.

    maybe I`m jaded, but I`m kinda tired of being amazed at CGI. After a while, my amazement is all spent and I expect it as the norm.

    still bored

    "Wouldn`t it be cheaper and easier to do this with cameras? There`s nothing in there that required CGI"

    Cheaper? Not really- it took two guys a relatively short period of time to do this- without expensive cameras, without produce, multiple shots and tons of editing. They planned it out exactly as they wanted it and executed it.
    It might have actually taken less time than if it was produced "practically."

    Easier? Maybe- depend son the people making it. Some people work better with this- others work better in other mediums.

    Other benefits? Total Control. There isn`t a single thing that they can`t perfect. Everything is as the want it to be. You can`t do that with practical effects.

    Everything these guys make is CGI- they have a few making-of video`s (http://vimeo.com/8200251)

    It`s two guys that are very good at their craft. Keep in mind that this is all inanimate objects in controlled motion and demolition. We`re not talking about people- or cars- or anything incredibly complex.

    Video was found via Gizmodo: http://is.gd/hUhDg

    Check out the other making-of videos and their other video`s for more examples of what these guys are capable of.

    If its really 100% CGI then thank god cause we will never need real objects. Better still if actors become redundant because we can digitally put them in. The discrepencies between false and real lighting within an environment cant fool our judgement of real objects against computer graphics and this will always be apparent. It looks false when the two combine. Good work, lets just all go digital. -sarcasm

    While very impressive, it still costs more per frame than actually shooting actual footage. Renders are extremely time consuming and expensive. Each frame of that video could easily take a couple of hours to render with a typical consumer PC.

    @zyran - rendering took that long 10 years ago, not anymore. It takes hundreds of hours to set up these shots, getting the shaders and the lighting and the textures perfect, but modern hardware can render the final frames in seconds, practically in realtime. And I`m pretty sure these guys aren`t using typical consumer PCs, they`re using render farm systems with dozens of processors.
