The Third and The Seventh: A journey into architecture awesomeness with a twist

Above is a screencap from Alex Roman’s The Third and the Seventh. It’s beautiful. That’s for sure. But it’s only a split second of what this man’s talent has to offer in his latest.

The Third & The Seventh is a must watch. It inspires on many levels. On one, we see an abstraction of architecture from the point of view of the camera lens. On another level — and this one even more surprising — the whole thing is done in CG.

Say what you want about his seemingly overuse of DOF shots .. we love ’em. And it really just proves the point of his whole presentation of architecture, highlighting the shapes, patterns and colors that grow from man made objects.

Alex Roman clarifies later on:

I think i must make it clear. There are a few non-CG elements in the shortfilm: photographer (shot on greenscreen), pigeons, timelapsed growing flowers, flying airplane and sky backgrounds.

Towards the latter part of the film, you do start to get the feeling that there’s a catch to all of this. How everything seems so perfectly shot. Even the ridges and imperfections look … well .. perfect. And maybe that is the clincher. Roman’s work was recorded using a i7 920 and QX6850.
