The Footage

The work on "Blowout at Exit 16A" (created specially for the book "Carnivora" by Les Barany) started with a purely computer generated image featuring Till Nowak's Woojet concept car and the city of his short film "Delivery".

Then Leslie Barany suggested the tire changing idea and contributed his photo of artist Eli Livingston handling a real life situation after a blowout at an existing interstate exit 16A in New Jersey, the origin of the title. Besides endless painting, layering, color correcting and masking there are several photo­graphic elements that played an important role in the final image, as you can see in the following images.

This lensflare was used as editing source for the sunset mood.

Palms from Los Angeles worked as the vegetation in the image.

The shiny lamp came from this photo taken on an aircraft carrier.
