The Beauty of Architecture by Alex Roman

The Beauty of Architecture by Alex Roman

 Alex Roman, or Jorge Seva or The Third & The Seventh ( He goes by several names ) is a master of film making and post production. This entire short film is 3D apart from the few live shots of himself.

The Third & The Seventh serves as Roman’s showcase for his extensive digital modeling and rendering work. Instead of creating a standard video reel or gallery of images, he created a digital environment in which the viewer “walks through” every project, experiencing them spatially and tangibly.

Roman’s work is truly impressive, and The Third & The Seventh is nearly impossible to distinguish from reality upon initial viewing.



Alex Roman was born in 1979, in Alacant (Alicante), a city in Spain.

I would first like to say that my real name is Jorge Seva, but I use ‘Alex Roman’ as an artistic alias for publishing independent work.

After being trained in traditional painting at a few academies, I discovered this other world called CG. After school, I made the move to Madrid and began working at a visual effects company. That stint did not last too long due to the lack of demand for visual effects in the Spanish market at the time. It was then, that I switched into the VIZ business.

I have been working for several companies since. Some time back, in partnership with Sergio Miruri, we had attempted to run our own company — unfortunately, our efforts were not met with success. Currently, I work as a senior leading artist in a company based in Madrid.

In parallel, I’m also working on an “already-built work” visualization series which will be stitched together into a short animated piece.

Roman used 3dsmax, Vray, AfterEffects and Premiere

And here is a look at how alex did this video.

This video shows wire-frame models of the environments, and demonstrates the material application and lighting effects that make the original video so convincing.
