Film effects work 'Miracles in Reshetova'


I set up SquareZero with Dmitri Lavrov end of 2003  - the idea was to produce special effects for a russian directors film. We made forty plus scenes of varying degrees of difficulty . They included a CG creature, a talking cat, a mermaid, magical transformations, melting bodies and a witch flying in a washing machine. The two of us spent four months working 12- 18 hour days using just the first Apple G5 and an IBM workstation. It went horribly overbudget and the director ripped us off balance payments so the company nearly went bust before it had even started. It took a year of hard scraping and begging for small jobs before we really got going again.

No doubt, many issues of the film are uncertain because of objective reasons but we are interested in telling about hard and sometimes difficult work of scientists, experts in art and in Leonardo whose lifework has been to fill in the gaps concerning Leonardo da Vinci’s life and creative activity. Every day brings news from all over the world about findings related to his name. Visit http://www.olomagic.com/
