Tromp L’Oeil September 5, 2009

I’m forever fascinated by the way point of view influences how an image is perceived. Take these two images for example. The first is a birds-eye view of the animation table. The process of the image is laid bare exposing the construction elements of the set.

Now consider the next shot. The angle is carefully chosen to hide the structural elements leaving only the clean facade of the intended image. Add to that dramatic lighting and a composited background and you have movie magic!
