Erik Lauritzen created an engaging photo montage for a World World II documentary entitled “Last Best Hope.” The 2.5D technique isn’t new, but Erik’s execution is one of the best I’ve seen. He does an excellent job creating believable 3D space using (I assume) camera mapping to get that extra bit of dimensionality.
For a similar approach, see Cocoe’s El Pais campaign.
Erik, by the way, lives and works in Austin, my old home. There aren’t too many motion graphics studios or freelancers in the Silicon Hills, so it’s cool to see him doing well and rocking some nice work.
