Abstract/Artist Statement

99.999% is a full featured, animated short film created to demonstrate the effects of space travel across several thousand years. Born out of a creative idea and scientific theory, the short film educates and entertains the audience. 99.999% was created in Autodesk 3DS Max and rendered out to standard, high resolution JPEG images in the 70mm IMAX, Panavision aspects. The final frames were imported into Virtual Dub (an open source video editing and interleaving program) and output as a high resolution (Audio Video Interlace) AVI file. Final editing and dubbing was done in Adobe Premiere Pro, part of the Adobe Creative Suite 4. In order to save space and make the video portable, the final AVI file was compressed again using Flash Video compressing technology to reduce the file size by as much as 300%. 99.999% is a unique film in many ways. One to note, is that the film is stop action, as each frame plays to the next. 99.999% was a project aimed to prove that one person can make an animated short film under a time and budget constraint, and that one can apply a computer science approach to make such a film. Sit back, and enjoy exploring space, at 99.999% of the speed of light!
