BACK to the FUTURE "Forced Perspective"

Run Time -  5:27   Release Date -  10/15/14

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.
