The Fargo “This is a true story” text is apparently justified to the left in the 90s movie, the recent series is a bit more playful with how the each part appears.
Teaser of the Video I’m working on based on an 8 – 32 square grid which I expand or contract within its framework to make the grid less visually rigid and more of a guide.
Below Is the set-up for the infinite Landscape in an hexagonal configuration:

These are some very preliminary tests with photogrammetry from open-source images, using tourist photos to reconstruct 3D models of some of the world’s most photographed sites (just for ease with initial tests). I don’t know how useful this technique will be for the future of the project, I just thought I’d start getting to grips with its limitations and potentials – the software I’m using is Agisoft’s Photoscan.
St Paul’s Cathedral – Sampled via 100 Flickr images
It seems to demonstrate the effect I was talking about last tutorial with the most photographed elements being the most clearly defined. The distortions in the image seem to be caused where the software fails to properly align cameras/guess lens lengths.
The Statue of Liberty – Sampled via 200 Google Images
Tower Bridge – Sampled via 100 Google Images
My Flat – Sampled via 60 photos taken on DSLR (Fixed lens length & lighting)
Obviously a Photoscan done with images intended to help build a 3D model results in a scene with considerably more detail and accuracy, although having done these experiments I think it is potentially more interesting to investigate the strange anomalies produced where the algorithm gets it wrong.
