Ground Light

Done in Alias Maya and Adobe After Effects

After taking a photograph of a scene of our choosing we were given the task of recreating the scene as faithfully as possible in 3d so that the rendered scene and the photo were nearly identical. The rotation and switch to wireframe view was meant to show the viewer that this was not a photo at all as well as to give them some idea about how the illusion was constructed. The light shown is one of the many outdoor lights surrounding my apartment building--I chose it because I really liked the look and shape of it and thought that it would be an interesting challenge.
