Check out this Lobo work for The Ebeling Group. The pop-up images are composited beautifully into the hand-held, sun-flared footage. Not much else can be said, just a gorgeous compositing job.

V&A and Playstation ® teamed up with United Visual Artists and onepointsix to present Volume, an interactive audio/visual installation. The colors are stunning and the interaction with the viewers is fascinating.
