The movie lacked coverage of inside of the Kumite, so I had to make a lot of the structure up and when I could, I would photoshop out images and post them up in the 3d model.
Sketch-up has a relatively small library of 3d objects and trying to find hundreds of angry characters from all over the world was impossible. I decided to use silhouettes of people instead to offer more focus on individuals in the fight.
By the time I was adding the people and roof while doing a screen recording, my old mac sounded like a jet engine and was as hot as one too. Sketch-up could barely run once it reached a certain size, so I had to keep the file short and sweet.
