“Lucid Dreams of Gabriel” is a short film produced by Disney Research that follows a son and mother on a surrealist, non-linear journey told through a series of new experimental production and post-production technologies. Disney Research created the short, which experiments with HDR (high dynamic range), frame rate, and computational slow motion, for a number of reasons.
1. Research to try out new production and post production technologies
2. Education to take researchers through the nuts and bolts of film production and post production
3. Integration to have many researchers working towards a common goal
4. Footage to create professional film footage for future experiments and to provide it to the research community
