“Forty eight years ago this week Star Trek debuted its first episode on NBC. The show, like all other shows at the time, was broadcast in the old 4×3 aspect ratio. Using HD screen caps from my friends at Trekcore.com, I created this project of what the show would have looked like in Cinerama widescreen.”

“The most expensive and complicated things we have to create and shoot are kitchens. Unfortunately, kitchens are one of those rooms that differ very much depending on where you are in the world. A kitchen in the US will look very different to a kitchen in Japan, for example, or in Germany. Very early on we created around 200 CG exchanges versions for 50 photographed kitchens – and I think everyone began to understand the real possibilities.”

75% of all IKEA’s product images are CGI.
