I was bored and going thru some Photoshop tutorials. I haven’t played around with Photoshop in a while so I figured I post something up about it. There wasn’t a specific one that I used, kinda browsed thru and used some bits and pieces here and there. The final result isn’t perfect but it was only an hour long session. I’ll probably post some more here as I get more time to fool around with it.
So I’m Not a fan of the Lord of the Rings at all, If I wanted to watch 3 hours of people walking and 10 minutes of fighting, I’d just go to a city park. But the camera magic behind the scenes is just off the hook. They used Forced-Perspective with Moving Cameras to give the illusion of regular sized and midget sized people interacting in the same environment in the same shot. Completely mind blowing what can be done just by filming at an angle and using some off kilter props.
