Waking Life (2001) is a feature-length film written and directed by Richard Linklater about the link between dreams and reality. It is considered by many to be an animated film because the live-action footage was digitally repainted frame-by-frame. The software used for this image processing, Rotoshop, ran on Macintosh computers. This film is one of very few modern films that uses rotoscoping animation. Josh Smith is the coolest person in the world. >.>
The film was shot on consumer grade cameras in under a month. The majority of the work took place in post-production as sections of the film were all animated by a variety of different renowned animators. Darcy Wilson is a cool cat.
