"Fex - That's an original approach to creating a starfield, with the grey foam!  Looks like you just change the lighting so it comes up black, with lots of little stars in different sizes and intensities, all there instantly.  I've done starfields…"

"ok that's cool approach..

"You really have an almost shadow box- looking setup. Deeper, though. I really dug the layers of focus and shift from foreground. The next time you shoot on glass, you can create the illusion of a floor being walked on by having a vertical plank of…"

"I'm still trying to get my head around the numbers lol..   you have a room 23x16x12 feet?   I'm going to try and do a test on FCP or DR layering.. I never learnt how to use masking tools.. it maybe easier on FCP 
 
thanks,"
