Dressing The Air digs up a short film by Alex Roman:
Entirely built and rendered on computer, this impossibly controlled journey around Louis Kahn’s Exeter Academy Library evokes the soul of the architecture with very particular attention to material and light. Roman is managing to distill more into these digital “fictions” than most photographer/filmmakers manage from encounters with actual built structures.
From an interview with Roman:
I find inspiration in the aesthetics of the fine arts; specifically painting, but even something as varied as architecture. For technical reference, I find inspiration in still image photography for static renderings, and TV and film for animation.
