I designed and composited this shotwhile supervising the show- America: The Story of US.
I received FX renders from the awesome Matt Chandler who used Fume FX in 3DSMax to generate lots of passes for me which I then augmented using live action elements tracked in. The earth was a matte painting projected onto geometry in Nuke. Complete shot comped and art directed by me while working with the client and editorial to make it fit in the show.
