My goal for this project was to match the light of the Classic Cinema Noir film "The Third Man"
Orson Welles's movie "The Third Man" had several scenes where the lighting and shadows make for an interesting composition. I choose this scene in particular because the character seems large and ominous until he is actually seen holding balloons.
I used screen shots from Google Earth to create a to-scale proxy of the street. This helped with setting up camers
After the stage was set, I went in an modeled the final environment. The statues are from a website called threedscans.com. This website creates and shares 3D photogrammetry scans of statues and busts for free. They were the closest models to the ones in the reference.
