In The Future, Nothing Will Be Real

This video is already a year old but that doesn't mean it's not worth posting again. I was really impressed with the cinematography work and the amazing detail in the composition...and then I realized it was all completely fake! That's right, Alex Roman doesn't create that horrible Transformers CGI; his computer graphic designs are true works of art. Click the full post to see a breakdown on how this was designed as well as Alex's latest creation which features more "organic" material. If you are young and want to retire early, learn how to create this ASAP!

I remember watching this a year ago and thinking "wow that was amazing video work" and then a month later hearing that it was all CGI and my head almost exploded.

I only discovered Fstoppers a few months ago.. And been constantly watching everything thats posted since then.
I never comment for some unknown reason, but like 85+ % of the content appeals to me. So I'll take this moment to say you guys do a great job and I love your site.

Watching this , was the most beautiful 12 odd minutes of my year so far.
It drew me in to the point that the world did not exist while I was watching this.

I dont have words to give it justice.
Amazing work.
