Imagery of men and women are subtlely composited throughout
and their motion is minimal, reinforcing the piece's overall relaxed pace.
Low-key "Now Showing" text appears in several scenes - once
on an outside structure and another time in a store window. An animated leaf,
blowing in the wind, helps transition from one street scene to another.
Autodesk 3DS Max was used for modeling and Adobe After
Effects handled the compositing. Ambient Design ArtRage 2 was used to create
the oil painting effect. Several layers of footage from Getty Images were
rotoscoped into separate passes of light and shadow.
