illusion, a Short Film That Presents New York City as a Giant Fake Film Set

French filmmakers Claire & Max recently created this unique short film which imagines the entirety of New York City as a gigantic film set made up of fake building facades and props.

New York City. A switch noise and day appears instantly. This New-York is different: it’s a huge movie set with only facades without depth. Here, all people have a strange characteristic: a confusing and mesmerizing one… But what are we really?

Check out Claire & Max's technical writeup on how they achieved the look and feel of this film.
