Hi, Sean...
Glad you found the tut useful; albeit, not entirely convincing. In order to really "sell the shot" there is, in fact, an additional level of time and detail that you would have to invest. I think some texture to the wall would help and maybe another light and a few other elements... (signage in the elevator, etc.) A lot will depend on the environment you want to create, elevator, class room, whatever.
It really comes down to the amount of time and effort you can devote to the creation of that shot... and although After Effects offers some 3D capability, it does have its limitations.
Regarding major motion pictures, it isn't thousands of dollars... it's millions!
Thanks very much for writing... I'd like to see what you come up with.

Hi Rob. Thank you for the tutorial. That was extremely helpful. Especially the parts on lining up the walls and moving the point of interest. I do have one critique and i am hoping you have some advice. It looked like you fairly reasonably recreated what a room might look like. However, the finished product still didn't fool me that it wasn't a fake room.
How are they able to accomplish this in the movies. (please don't say thousands of dollars, blah, blah, blah.) I understand that. What techniques could i add to my own room to fool someone even more???
