Raw video plate of a Japanese stool in my living room with a 3D model of a lightsaber composited in. Competed for a school project at The Art Institute of Colorado for my Compositing class.

I used Nuke to 3D track the video plate, brought the scene into Maya and used dynamics to animate the lightsaber falling onto the stool. Final compositing and color correction was done back in Nuke.

3D lightsaber model found at Renderosity and re-textured using Mental Ray textures.

Video plate shot using the Canon 60D with a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens.
