  3. This piece is still currently a work in progress. What I have done so far is film a background plate and camera tracked/matched it inside Nuke. I moved it over to Maya to build the environment. I started with a few basic concepts for lighting and scale before developing a bit more of the look I wanted. After that I began modeling the interior. Once I had a base interior, I gave it some quick texturing. Because of the camera move, I was able to take both the beginning frame and the end frame and use them to camera project my final beauty pass render back onto the model I had created. This let me render the scene without lights, drastically cutting down on render time. It also allowed me to take my render into photoshop and paint additional details such as cracks and also fine tune the exposure of the lighting. By doing this I cut down my render time by 4X. At the moment I have yet to fine tune all of the green screen key and still need to rotoscope around parts of the footage where the actor leaves the greenscreen backdrop. I also need to work on removing various subtle reflections on the ground and also recreate the 3D environments reflections in the ground. Final touches to the shot will include a matching map on the floor to seamlessly blend with the actual footage, some light bloom and wrap for the lights, distance fog to give some scale and light rays coming in the doors on the left. Also a possibility of adding some water dripping stock elements or dust elements. Because of the tracked scene inside nuke, I should be able to composite those element in 3D space to ensure the track correctly into the environment.
