Working on a game show is a particularly interesting because photorealism is often the goal. Typically we will choose a set that captures the feel that the client is looking for. This virtual set can come from the client side, be created on our end from scratch or from an existing set from our library.
This set came from our library and was modified based following a series of meetings that we had with our client. It reflected the look and feel that the client expressed early on. It also needed to be a set that offered multiple backgrounds for the panelists, guest and talent (hallway) walk onto set.
Another important note to building a realistic set is using dramatic lighting and the use of parallax in a scene. We work closely with our client to create a scene that demonstrates good depth and modeling with creative camera movement.
