Making a great scene from just a picture, how ?

Look this “aftermath shot” , the guy say it was done mostly with just one fotograph.

How can we do this in blender ?

Use the foto as a texture on a plane and animate the camera accordingly. Then use compositor to edit in the FX shots.


Different techniques I think.

First one image mapped flat to a plane UV or otherwise, 2nd image mapped via camera projection onto a basic 3D model of a city?

And this:

Just guessing.
