So a new scifi film called Arrival, released some promotional posters, however one particular poster featured an image of Hong Kong but Shanghai’s Oriental Pearl Tower was composited onto the image. Of course some HK citizens were unhappy, as there’s been tensions over it’s governance. However as someone not too concerned about their politics, I wonder was it necessary to stick such a famous building onto the image? Did they think “oh stick a Chinese building in”, just to show it’s china? They must really think that the audiences are dumb.
In any case, they had a Shanghai poster made too anyways, which actually looks even better, so why spend the extra time and effort to composite a building, when you had an image that has the building already in it? Is it a step too far with compositing?
