The images have a strikingly realistic, step-right-in look that, despite their retro inspiration, could only have been achieved with modern-day technology. Hoyle chose to craft each shot by computer using 3D software, having been inspired by the stunning alternate realities that contemporary filmmakers are able to accomplish with chroma-key-composited backgrounds. Hoyle shot the models with a 35mm camera and then blended them into the 3D-rendered backgrounds. ...

So I have to blur it to make it convincing."
