It's a clear day in L.A.; a jumbo jet needs to make an emergency landing. The radio traffic reporter gets word that the police have cleared a two-mile stretch of the 405 freeway from the 118 to Victory. A young man in an SUV seems to have the road to himself when he looks into his rear view mirror and sees the jet about to land on top of him. He floors it, complications befall him, and he and the jet are on a collision course with the Little Old Lady from Pasadena, driving slowly in her Lincoln. Miracles can happen, and the old woman gets the last word. Written by
Produced in three months by Hunt and Branit in their spare time. Extensive and highly convincing computer graphics rendering was done on their own two personal computers. See more »
When you see 405 Freeway for the first time (21 second of the movie) one of it's strips (left) is occupied by cars and second one (right) is empty (with only main character cars on it) - prepared for emergency landing of a place on it. When you see it for the second time (00:34 of movie) in the scene where an airplane is approaching to the ground, both strips are empty of cars. See more »
Excellent film, especially for those learning the art...
Given the budget, this is a hard one to score...
However, as a computer programmer, I can see they put a lot of effort in to the details, so that the film has a finished feel. Similar attempts by others have seemed like five minute hacks of previously copyrighted material (and often are).
This film is worthy of cinema release -- may be it should be sold as an ad to Intel, because they provided the hardware to produce most of it.
This film (and the related web site) is strongly recommended to anyone intending to use computers to enhance or generate moving pictures.
