This piece was inspired by M.C. Escher and his stairs of illusion. In order to execute this concept, we started with simple black and white sketches in order to work out the design. Once we settled on an architectural design that closely resembled the different rooms from the show, we had a 3D render developed. We then were able to figure out the exact placement for our cast members.
Once we had clearance from Nickelodeon to move forward with this concept, we photographed each cast member in their respective positions at exactly the correct angle so that they could be placed into the 3D model.
We completed the execution by adding in textures and giving it an overall lighting affect that unified the piece.
