Problem: The ideal store could not be found and the budget could not support using a helicopter camera platform.

Solution: We created and shot multiple matte paintings of clouds and a miniature of a Kroger Supermarket and its environs.This cost much less than a helicopter shot while providing more control.
The miniature elements were shot onto 35 mm motion picture film using our motion control system. Pacific Data Images then added computer generated elements into the scenes.
