So with a slow and short week before Thanksgiving, I needed something to keep me busy. A technique that was first shown to me by Chris Morris, I wanted to give a 3D illusion a try out. This technique to mostly seen as "chalk drawings". We've all seen the Street Art that looks like a whole in the ground or other two-dimensional beings coming alive… But instead of having stationary art, I thought I'd see if it was possible to do with video.
The build was designed all in Cinema 4D. This illusion only works because of the angle at which it is viewed at. We needed to put all the measurements into Cinema and then go from there. Below you can see a quick video on how it works.
This is a cool technique that can only work in very specific situations, but it rather neat to see when done right.
