Galactica “Forced Perspective” Landing Bay Diorama by Christopher Callaghan

I love when artists do unique builds… and this is one of those. The term “Forced Perspective” is a term well used in the film industry as most of what we’ve viewed in past movie’s special effects. It deals with scenes that are seen close, but look as if what you see get’s further away from you. This is done with a variety of film trickery. This diorama by Chris Callaghan is fantastic in that same way…. showing us how deep the landing bay entrance is, while truly only being a few inches from the camera, and model displayed in the foreground. Chris even placed a smaller Viper in the stall next to the foreground Viper for better depth perception. Not to mention the shadow of the Viper and Crew member on the deck flooring! Nicely done!
