For our master graduation project we produced a Game Of Thrones Intro inspired video as a tribute to Italy and to all GoT fans.
With the use of computer graphics and 3D modeling softwares, we recreated 6 of the most famous and loved italian cities.
The aim of our thesis is to analyze the impact of new technologies and social media on the diffusion of tv series-related contents produced by fans.
The Forced Perspective is a technique that uses optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is in reality: human perception is manipulated and deceived by the use of distances and scale ratios. It is mainly used in photography, film and architecture.
