    At 4997 frames in length, this sequence from Hard Rain shows how computer graphics can add possibilities to film and jettison you into a story without knowing where the real ends and the fake begins…High end compositing was used to integrate 3D computer generated water, rain and fog (created in Arete, Dynamation, and proprietary code), farm equipment and birds, with live action film shots, miniatures, matte paintings and sky replacements — each with their own camera moves — to create one fluid journey.
