Description:
It is a 3-D computer animation combined with live video. Depicted are three runners followed by a camera down a foggy street in a small German village. To visualize "The Way", I've inverted the common system of the central perspective. Instead of having the vanishing point at its usual place (i.e., on the horizon which represents endlessness), I've moved it to the closest possible position next to the viewpoint. Since the viewpoint and the vanishing point are in nearly the same place in this system, every object disappears before it reaches the viewer. (Source: http://www.waliczky.com)
