A stunningly real work of unreality

The video below is hauntingly beautiful, and one would think it required the greatest patience, a very practiced eye, and a lot of blessing with lighting.

The Third & The Seventh from Alex Roman on Vimeo.
Actually, it took mostly the first. The entire film consists of CGI (Computer Generated Images). There is nothing real about it at all. It was created by Alex Roman (here is an interview).
To me, this makes James Cameron look like a piker.
But when I look around at the constantly changing, very real world that is the canvas, the celluloid, of creativity Himself... well, we're all pikers.

Pretty awesome. Especially the movement of the leaves, and a great use of depth of field.
