why would you do all this in CGI - that would make it far more expensive than using traditional methods or at least a blend.

James Cameron's Avatar was done mostly against blue screens, or in a barn or both, and people still have the gonads to say this is fake.

...or real...

Lets put it this way, I've never seen something done so meticulously that I'm actually having a moment where I question the linguistics needed to express the validity of this video.

I refuse to believe that is CGI. Someone prove it to me first.

and the uncanny valley doesn't even apply to inanimate objects, it really only applies to people...

@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.

I don't believe it! It is too easy to fake amazing CG effects nowadays...

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.

Yeah yeah realistic lemons, very good, but it's not got any humans in it, because that's when we'd be able to tell they're CGI. I await the day we have CGI humans that just look totally real :)

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

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.

@littlepete50: I think you are thinking of eXistenZ, a movie that came out in 1999 staring Jude Law

What's that film where they put the helmets on and play a game but it's unmistakably like real life, then they take their helmets off, but it's all part of the game, and they're still in the game but don't know it? Yeah.
