Press Release: Disney Research Lucid Dreams of Gabriel FINAL


“Lucid Dreams Of Gabriel,” an experimental short film created by Disney Research in collaboration with ETH, Zürich, was shot at 120fps/RAW in Engadin, Switzerland, one of the most spectacular mountain areas in the country. The film demonstrates effects developed as part of our research program in video processing.

We sought to produce a visual effects framework that would support the film’s story in a novel way. Our technique, called “The Flow-Of-Time,” includes local frame rate variation, local pixel timing and a variety of artistic shutter functions, with all effects invented and applied in-house at Disney Research Zürich.
