Description

In our 2nd BACK TO THE FUTURE installment, we tackle the technique of "Forced Perspective". Forced Perspective is a visual effect that can make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. We followed a simple formula to get our 1/24th & 1/15th scale Delorean to match our backdrop. Distance from Camera (ft) x Scale of Model = Distance between FG model & BG We were shooting on a Canon 5d Mark II with a 17mm wide angle lens. This formula may change with different type of lenses used. This formula is a good guide to get you close to where you need to be, but tinkering will always be necessary. Part 3 will go into how we created our miniature Hill Valley, and also some composting techniques used in post production. Music by: Big Fok http://bigfok.com In Association with PBS Digital Studios
