Persistence Of Vision (1991)

The following images are from a student film project from 1991 called Persistence Of Vision. It was part of the master level film course (480) at the University of Southern California (USC) School of Cinema-Television (SCT). The project was an interpretation of Chris Marker’s film La Jetée and required my effects group, OPTRIX, to create a full size time machine based off of designs provided by the production. The director of this student film was Lee Unkrich, who would go on to direct Toy Story 2 & Toy Story 3, Monsters Inc., and Finding Nemo. OPTRIX staff pictured below include myself (Jay), Brian, David, Jed, with additional assistance from Jim.
