Please click on each thumbnail to view the video.

Reentry: New York City - Studies for Synthetic Meteors V2.0 2006-2007
These videos were produced using compositing techniques similar to those that would be used for the proposed commission. In this case, real-time sky is composited with computer generated imagery and a time-averaged ground.

A note on these flash videos: These barely do justice to the full HD originals, let alone the original digital cinema masters, a down-side of web presentation. The resolution of these flash videos is only 640x360 while the full HD is 1920x1080 pixels and the masters are 3k x 2k. The compressed full resolution HD versions of these are typically a couple hundred megabytes, far too large for a web download.
