Project Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events
Here is a small project from back in 2001, where I had to design some doorways themed with "eyes" in them to match the look of the book series that had no photography finished yet. These were for a teaser 1 sheet design, so this first round was just comped.
3D is king in creating images like this, as it was also employed in the Superman Returns project with assets not yet filmed or built being needed for advertising in like manner. Design and build in one step saves cash!
These are what is referred to at Art Center as a "Sketch Model" or "3D Sketch". I designed them in 3D while I was building them, this is where having just a 3D Modeler costs at least twice as much as you also need a Designer to design the doors. I do both at once, and all five concepts were done in under 2 Hrs, or at the time about $200.oo bucks.
