Perspective is perhaps the most pervasive illusion. It gives us a sense of depth, even in 2D. It's the subject of any number of illusions. "Forced Perspective" can trick us into thinking that something is bigger or smaller - until we move our heads and the illusion breaks.
So, given the normally fleeting existence of visual illusions, it's all the more surprising that you can make a whole film that relies on one specific trick, and yet, however hard you look, the illusion that the people, cars and buildings in a well-made Tilt-Shift film are miniatures doesn't fall apart. Which makes it all the more fascinating.
This is another Tilt-Shift film from Keith Loutit and collaborator Jarbas Agelli. No matter how many times you see the trademark Tilt-Shift techniques (shallow depth of field, elevated camera angle, time lapse) it's still an utterly convincing and yet, at the same time, perplexing effect.
