This is how I would imagine my two shots to come out. The first of which being a seemingly normal establishing shot of the church, which cuts to a closeup of the spire and probably another camera move. I also aspire to learn fluid dynamics in Maya to create a moving flag, if I have the time. If not, I will; probably stick to a flat non-moving image of a flag because it will have a similar effect, it would just be nice to give the image an extra visual push.
Church pic to use:
After receiving feedback on this idea, it was discussed that having a very small flag wouldn’t be noticeable or understandable to an outside viewer looking at this project. We first discussed having a shot inside Westminster Cathedral with a huge flag by the altar, because the purpose is actually to use scale to represent something that isn’t actually normal or possible. Thinking about Westminster cast my mind back to the Westminster attack in March. I have now come up with the idea of using an image of Westminster Bridge with the geometry projected, and having a huge knife right in the middle of the road. Whilst potentially controversial for a social commentary, it is a commentary nonetheless and has relevance to recent events.
This is my first Render View after downloading and half-texturing a knife model
Here is a screenshot from the finished product. I had experimented with textures using the Hypershade, as I could not seem to get a good texture for the base of the knife and later turned to having the entire model in a chrome texture.
