The Gervasutti bivouac is prefabricated high tech climber’s hostel commissioned by CAI Torino, the Italian Alpine Club on Mt. Blanc, Italy, designed by LEAPfactory.
The hostel is named after the great Italian mountaineer Guisto Gervasutti and looks out over the same mountain range he was the first to conquer – the east face of the Grandes Jorasses – which he scaled in 1942.
The Gervasutti shelter is solar-powered and equipped with a unit to measure local conditions (self-diagnosis, weather conditions, web-cam, emergency rescue communication) connected with logistic and rescue headquarters. The shelter offers a sanitary module with a biological toilet, wooden bunk beds, living area with kitchenette and a breathtaking view above Freboudze glacier.
The entire video is made of CGI. Motion capture was used for all animation and rendered as colored solids. This technique is used in 3D post production to easily separate objects from one another (one color per object).
