This isn’t the first piece we did for the gloved one. It isn’t the strangest either (does anyone remember Is This Scary?), but it is certainly the biggest. For starters, we recreated Budapest in miniature. In the city center we placed a statue scaled 800 feet high (Michael didn’t think small), and surrounded it with a miniature crowd numbering half-a-million. This is one of the earliest CG projects. The helicopters are all CG, and so is Michael’s army. At the time, the wide shot of the drilling army was the most complex After Effects render ever attempted. How times have changed.
