Created by Matt Moses the city backplates were shot with the Canon 7D and a Tilt Shift lens. Tilt shift lenses give it that "tiny town" look of small scale DOF. Matt built and textured the robot in 3dsmax, and rigged him using CAT - Rendered in Finalrender, composited in Combustion. All three shots took 3 days, including a day to build the robot.
Only only gripe - we wish is was a bit longer, really nicely done.
