Shot Stitch #2 – “Children of Men” (spoilers)
My second Shot Stitch is the classic long take from Children of Men. The shot contains MASSIVE SPOILERS for the film. So… be warned…
As you can tell, the final stitches become HUGE images. So huge, that I am having trouble displaying them for you. This shot, for example, is a 360°+++ camera move, that when stitched together created a 40,320 pixel image. Yikes!
A scrollable version of the image:
– The camera didn’t pan in one constant direction, sometimes it stopped and reversed. This made it really hard to create a consistent left-to-right panorama. I took some creative liberties with my stitching: trying to never jump back in time in the shot, but sometimes I did skip over some sequences. This is pretty obvious towards the end of the stitch.
– HOLY SHIT, Chiwetel Ejiofor was in Children of Men!?!?
– Some day I want to do a stitch for Gravity. I read that the film only has ~150 shots total… Theoretically, you might be able to represent the whole film in 150 stitched images… stitchgasm!
Stay tuned for more stitches, and remember to share/like/tweet/etc. Spread the love!
