I'm done with the project. I never thought I would be able to say those words. I knew very little about Photoshop and Sketch Up before I started this project, I have messed around with them in the past, but nothing too extreme. I spent a lot of time on the first part of the project in Sketch Up and now this time I spent a lot of time in Photoshop. By adding pictures I was able to give more of a feeling than by just adding images from the 3d warehouse in Sketch Up. This project was very time consuming. I feel like the dorm walls and floor turned out very well. I was going for that classic dorm hallway look, very bare, with shiny new floors. The door tuned out well as well. It actually looks like a door! I added the towel for "dorm affect" and I added the poster as a metaphor. Its suppose to have a 1960's oceans 11 feel but I didn't want to be blunt and just throw an Oceans 11 poster on the door. Catch me if you can pretty much sums up my script, heists, hating the world that they or he as in Frank lived in. The inside of the door was the hardest part. I really got stuck here. How was I suppose to make the party life of the script come alive in the smallest section of the shot? I started off with the pool table. Once I got the perspective right on that I kinda could see it coming together, but still. I wasn't quite convinced that it was going to turn out super awesome. I then moved onto the bar. The bar was actually really fun because I found a website that had a lot of cool 1960's bars. So I scrolled through a bunch of them and tried to find one that would be classy but still have kind of a young feel to it. I added the poster of the women on the back wall to symbolize that fact that they are obsessed with women. The pool balls on the pool table were second to the last thing that I added, They are a nice extra detail. The red carpet was the final touch to the piece! I found an image off some website that talked about Hollywood and I went from there and started messing around with it in Photoshop. Overall I'm a lot happier than I thought I was going to be on how this project turned out. I was being negative about it in the beginning, but now I'm really stoked on it!
