VarCity – the Video is a short documentary-style CGI movie explaining the main outcomes of the 5-year Computer Vision research project VarCity. Besides a coarse overview of the research, we present the challenges that were faced in its production. These were mainly induced by two factors: i) imperfect raw research data produced by automatic algorithms that had to be included in the movie, and ii) human factors, like federating researchers (and later a CG artist) around a similar goal many had a different conception of, while no one had a detailed overview of all the content. Successive achievement was driven by some ad-hoc technical developments but more importantly of detailed and abundant communication and agreement on common best practices.
