In the pre-digital days, filmmakers had to build it if they wanted to shoot a scene in a fantastic environment. For wide shots, a very specific art form was born; the art of the miniature. Filmmakers would hire prop makers skilled in architecture, and visual design was hired to create tiny scale models of all kinds of spaces. The miniature sets were used for several purposes and were virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. Miniature sets are still used today and sometimes are even preferable to all-digital approaches. The most important part of visual effects is to make viewers believe what they see on screen is real.
