Here, perspective of a video camera view and perspective of a Computer Graphics camera view are colliding. Consequently, the images were weirdly distorted. I shot one scene, which shows people playing Gateball in a wide open field, from the point where I could view the whole area with a wide angle lens. I brought the video footage into 3D Computer Graphics space. Here it was shown on the surface of a rectangular plane. I re-shot some particular areas of the moving image on the plane by using a Computer Graphics camera which can be located at any position.

The low quality of the movie images are due to the above making-process. It is inevitable.

(Gate Ball is a popular ball game in Japan especially for senior retired people. Not exactly, but it probably is like Cricket.)
