Real Fake Worlds

About two weeks ago, Josiah, a friend, sent me the the link to this short film. I started watching and couldn't stop until it was over. Not just because it's so beautifully composed and edited, but also because every object in the film was modeled using 3dsmax and rendered using Vray by only one person... Alex Roman.

If you watch even a portion of it, it's worth link to vimeo to see it full screen so you won't miss a detail.

Totally agree. I was astonished when I was told it was 3D rendering.
I had some trouble telling people to look at it until the end, 12 minutes is far too long for hurried 30-year-old executives. Can't blame them, though, time is money [irony powered].

Wow Robyn, that was an incredible find. It wasn't until he started making things outside of reality that I realized I wasn't looking at photography. So clever to show hints of the "tracking" rails and cranes to throw us off.

Such a celebration of architecture. As a great enthusiast of brutalist structures, I ate this up.

It's no wonder you like it so much -- the work you guys did on Myst and Riven? So many of the shots in that film, the closeups on the little details, harks right back to the spirit of those games.
