So I’ve now finished my ‘Lab 558’ miniature and am in the process off shooting it. I bought myself a glidetrack a few years ago which is a gadget that lets you get smooth panning shots with your camera. I’ve not really used it that much however so I’m taking full advantage of that.
I’m also trying to incorporate CG elements into the miniature shots using a camera tracker plug-in in after effects. It’s quite clever as it not only figures out the camera move but also the lens and focus distance as well. I’m then creating additional CG rocks and other elements to add to the lab model.
Here’s my set up.
And here’s a pic of the model.
