Loertscher Miriam; Gerber Thomas; Timo von Gunten; Weibel David; Iseli Christian

Two short feature films were recorded with a virtual background by using a green screen in a film studio and previously scanned 3D spaces in a virtual production environment and conventionally (in the corresponding real spaces) to compare the aesthetics and perception of these films. One scene of each film is shown in two variants (real vs. virtual background) to make a comparison.

These 2 QuickTime files represents both the "real" and "virtual" version of the short Film "Sonnenwende" (2019) by Timo von Gunten. The real version was shot on location using real backgrounds, the virtual version was shot in the studio in front of a green-screen using virtual backgrounds that were added in post production. 

Running time: 8min35sec. This is the highest quality version available. 

Virtually Real is a research project by the Zurich University of the Arts, Institute for the Performing Arts and Film and the University of Bern, Institute of Psychology.
