The environment was created from a single still photograph. This was worked through from a DV Garage tutorial on Camera Mapping. The image was separated into multiple layers and mapped to simple 3D geometry. A camera was pushed through the 3D scene to create a cityscape. For more information about camera mapping, see DV Garage.
