HUGO

Creating Hugo, Martin Scorseseâ
€™s first 3-D movie, took a lot of
imagination. But it also took a lot of
processing power —
one fantastic
scene alone would have taken
19.5 years to render if just a
single computer had been used
.
RENDERING just one version of one
shot of the film — the swooping view
into the train station, shown at the
beginning of the movie — took
171,015 hours of processing time.

Set in Paris in 1930 or thereabouts,
this is the story of Hugo Cabret , an
orphan, who lives up in the eaves of a
Paris railway station - Gare dâ
€™Orsay - among the cogs and
mechanics of the great station clock.

The railway station is now a Museum -
the Musee d'Orsay. The clock can be
seen on the end wall.
