IMMERSIVE COCOON 2011
As an homage to Stanley Kubrick and a teaser trailer for the i-Cocoon, the ‘Immersive Cocoon 2011’ short film sets up an improbable encounter. In a scenario reminiscent of the penultimate scene from Stanley Kubrick’s ’2001: A Space Odyssey’, Keir Dullea – the film’s original lead actor from over forty years ago – encounters a mysterious object in his living room.
The baroque apartment from the original film setting, with its abstract grid flooring, was digitally reconstructed in meticulous detail. Live action was filmed multi-camera against a green screen set atop a backlit Plexiglas floor. Forty years later, Keir Dullea re-enacted his original role. His movements were then integrated into a custom-built, entirely digital set and rendered at 1080HD.
