Updated Concept

I had to change some parts of my plan because of filming issues.

While keeping the main concept, I have obtained a new footage.

New footage

2 buildings extended in the foreground of the footage.

As the scene slides around the corner, balloons are flying away in the air with new buildings and clouds in the background.

I kept the main elements (balloons and building extensions) from the initial concept, then added clouds in the sky and paintings on a wall of the buildings.

Match move in Maya

It was difficult to match-move, especially the foreground building.

I originally planned to put another building where the wire-frame is, but tracker points kept sliding.

I thought distortion was the problem, so I tried to undistort the lens manually. But, there was not a noticeable change.

Adding a building & graffiti using 3D-projection in Nuke

Again, I tried to put a building on where the wire-frame is, but it failed, then I had to give up.

Reflection

This is my first project.

It feels really great to complete a project.

However, there are still many things that I think I could have done more and better. I still see so many things to improve on.

Although, during the process, there were also too many unexpected variables, I have learned meaningful lessons from them and I believe that this is going to be a stepping stone for me to improve as a DVFX artist.
