Realism test


This is simple test with a still image of the miniature shoot from last year.  The idea to to see how much I get from the plate, and how much I need to add in order to hit a high level of detail.  The doll was our character stand-in – the animation is just some image warping.

Most of the work is done in Shake (with a bit of Photoshop).  I’ve added live elements, balanced light, lens flare, defocus, a background replacement (with a simple key), animation, and a bit of paint over to cover up some odd lighting in the original plate.

Below is the original image:


These are some images from the bedroom build (which, for schedule reasons, happened almost a year after the first build).  Karin made a brick pattern from a transparency and selected areas where the features would show on the walls.  The floorboards are cut from the side of a wooden beam, then placed, sanded, painted, sanded a couple of time to get a worn look.
