Sinbad: Beyond the Veil of Mists (2000) is the first feature length CGI film created exclusively using motion capture. While many animators worked on the project, the human characters were entirely animated using motion capture. At a reported US$30 million, Sinbad: Beyond the Veil of Mists is reported to be the most expensive direct-to-video movie ever shot. It was filmed at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles, over a three-month period in 1997.
Along with Pandavas: The Five Warriors (2000), this was one of the first computer-graphics-based features made in India. Pentamedia company was behind both of these productions.
Famous quotes containing the words mists and/or veil:
“They call them the haunted shores, these stretches of Devonshire and Cornwall and Ireland which rear up against the westward ocean. Mists gather here, and sea fog, and eerie stories. Thats not because there are more ghosts here than in other places, mind you. Its just that people who live hereabouts are strangely aware of them.”
—Dodie Smith, and Lewis Allen. Roderick Fitzgerald (Ray Milland)
“When will the veil be lifted that casts so black a night over the universe? God of Israel, lift at last the gloom: For how long will you be hidden?”
—Jean Racine (16391699)
