3D Modeling the REAR WINDOW Film Set in SketchUp

When it comes to film set design, it doesn’t get much better than Hitchcock’s 1954 masterpiece Rear Window. The movie uses visual relationships created by the architecture of its central courtyard to explore themes of perspective and viewership.

This time on SketchUp Live, @eric-s uses SketchUp to explore the spatial relationships of the apartments.

Really great session guys, It’s always a pleasure to watch Eric practicing his craft and when you add Matt’s humour and vocal inputs to the stream it’s always a good one.


Thanks everyone who tuned in with us. Here is the final view - I just had to detail the fire escapes or else it’d bug me :wink:
