I don’t know why, but this one took me a long time to finish. I am very happy with the results, however, so totally worth it.
I used more bird sounds than normal on this video, but there were so many good ones, and all of them recorded just a couple miles from the site. There is a clip of a bunch of green parakeets being very chatty, and those were recorded about a block from the temple site.
This video was created just a few days after the artists render was released. As such, I am guessing about most of the temple. I have tried to get it as close to the stated size of 17,000 square feet as possible.
Released just last week, I have completed my video for the Taylorsville Utah Temple today. There are still some parts of it that I am still uncertain on though, so there will likely be another draft in the future.
Using Puebla as a reference model allowed me to get the model put together faster. I noticed details in San Pedro Sula that necessitated a change in the Puebla Model as well, so watch for a second draft model there as well.
I learned a thing or two about the Feather River Temple, so I made some changes. The temple sits facing north on the site, as does the Statue atop the spire, according to the render. This model reflects that, as well as the redwood trees on the north east corner of the lot that are being preserved.
Today’s video depicts the St. George Temple as it would have looked when the annex was first added. Few pictures exist of the temple in this state, but those that do clearly show the water tower of the temple sticking up right through the roof of the annex!
