This set piece took about 10 hours to make. It’s a forced perspective miniature of a street and buildings as seen from a balcony. The buildings may appear somewhat unfinished but the scene takes place at night and most of it will be in shadow so detailing was neither a priority nor a necessity. The finished shot lasts just over 1 second. Could I have done without it? Probably but it would have been at the expense of a really cool shot. Now, really cool shots do not a good film make but they certainly won’t hurt and sometimes you just want to show off.
