Designer’s Notes: In order to compose the final image, this piece required an intense amount of “rotoscoping” for each element performed entirely by hand (including all 12 statues)  – no automatic isolation was used in the creation of this piece! Additionally, the Torch and stain-glass Flame although part of the same set piece were actually composited from two completely separate images.
