Abstract:


    The opening shot in “Spirit” runs a full 3 minutes without scene cuts, and introduces the audience to the breathtaking scenery of the mythic Old West. This elaborate scene was accomplished with every possible technique by mixing traditional drawing and painting art forms with 3D environments, effects, and digital characters. This Sketch will attempt to summarize some of the key challenges in producing this scene, which took over two years to complete.
