To achieve the light ray effect, we hand traced and laser-cut over 4000 frames to create shape mattes, then physically shined light and haze through each individual frame to produce the stop motion effect. By mixing old school animation with practical haze over live-action footage, we were able to create the eerily atmospheric new dimension you see embedded in each frame.
