Last year we were approached by Director Julian Jones and IWC to work on a feature length stereoscopic documentary called INSIDE THE MIND OF LEONARDO. The movie is about the threads of thought and working processes of genius inventor and artist Leonardo Da Vinci .
The story centres around Leonardo’s personal journals (codex) which hold over 6,000 pages of handwritten notes and drawings. The film stars award winning actor Peter Capaldi as he narrates the translated text and passages directly from Leonardo’s journals. Our task was to help develop a look and feel and then animate the “mindscape” that transports the audience into Leonardo’s thoughts and ambitions. After working 8 very full months with a small but tremendously hard working team, we created roughly 30 minutes of stereoscopic animation.
