The work
Rohit uses Maya to render the models, perfectly positioned into drone footage of the city and finished with master lighting techniques he has developed from years of experience in his craft. Notice the Burj Khalifa scene with the origami horse. Lit to precisely suit the weather conditions and time of day. Incredible work indeed.
