It's from a movie... the Bear. Pretty good movie, actually.

Noob! It's clearly from MS Paint!


ALL MY HEROES ARE RUSSIAN...GO CAPS!

Well you see, Norm, it’s like this…A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

Storyboarded, it probably looked like this:

Opening: Gyrostabilized helicopter shot w/long distance lens.

Mountain Lion Appears: The focal change was post processing, it's actually a second tight camera shot and from a low angle layered over the long distance background.

Running: Two shots. Camera most likely on a dolly and rails. First shoot the bear running alone. Then the mountain lion running alone. Cut the sequence so it looks like a chase. Color correct for any lighting change.

Long Shot, Both Running In Field: Again two shots. Camera is fixed. First shot of bear running alone. Then the mountain lion running alone. Layer the shots, and color correct for any lighting change.

Bear Crossing The River On the Limb (long shot): CG. But good CG. The river is there, but not the tree or rock.

Bear & Lion on Limb: Layered Shots. They were shot individually.

Bear Floating on Log: Log is like a platform being towed by a line underwater. The rest of the platform is below the waterline.

...will get to the other stuff later.

Good stuff though. Nature films are cool, even the story ones. Eight Below was a good film about Sled Dogs that came out a few years back.

.
This was filmed in 1987, released in 1988. There was no such thing as CG, let alone good CG.

And there were no double shots. The entire scene was shot with allthree animals on set and in the shot at the same time. The DVD shows how many of the scenes were shot if you want to know more. The cub and bear are both highly trained. The cougar was a LA zoo animal that took well to training and got into acting because of it. All three have been domesticated.

Could have fooled me. That long shot, something looked a bit off about the bear running up the branch. Almost like a greenscreen kind of shot or as if rotoscoped in.

Nonetheless, hats off to the animal traniners. Rare they would let two territorial competitive apex hunters be in that close proximity to one another playing chase. Felines have a natural chase instinct that once aroused, tends to trigger their stalk/hunt/kill behavior.

Some animatronics for the fighting scenes too, apparently.

Dude, think of all the time you wasted making this shit up. If you would have been hanging with Von, you would have scored at least 4 Romanian chicas in that time (2 of which may have been of age..)

Took about 4-5 minutes actually (not including watching the film).
Wait, are you saying I'm a 4-minute man?

Nah, Storyboarding and Editing was part of a Filmography elective I took back in college. When I watch movies I sometimes think about how they achieved the shot, what processes they used, what kind of lighting, blah blah.

The crazy part - what took a bank of SGI rigs to do about 12-15 years ago, now can be done on a Mac w/Adobe After Effects.


Edit: Lol! I didn't even catch the 2 of which may have been of age part! Hey, isn't the age of consent in Romania like 14 or something
