In this class, we present tried and tested methods for creating large-scale environments out of modular pieces. These tricks can help you populate your scenes with geometry and dress your shots quickly. Our case study is a 4-minute short film that used a single12 foot x 12 foot modular set to bring an entire story to life.
- Create set pieces with an understanding of modular design
- Prepare assets for use in a modular setup
- Create a scene that uses modular assets and assemble an environment quickly
- Dress the set with more modular assets to give areas a unique quality
