BOULDER, Colo.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Jan. 10, 2006— @Last Software, Inc., makers of the award-winning SketchUp 3D modeling software, announced today their product's involvement in the making of "Good Night & Good Luck," a 2005 Warner Independent Film. Directed by George Clooney, the film depicts Senator Joseph McCarthy and the news coverage surrounding the infamous trials. The film has been nominated for four Golden Globe Awards, including "Best Motion Picture" and "Best Director."

Using the "Good Night and Good Luck" script, production designer James Bissell modeled the entire studio set in SketchUp. All sets and camera angles were pre-visualized with this dynamic 3D modeling tool. The final movie maintains the integrity of the virtual sets designed in SketchUp.

"I've used SketchUp to design movie sets for almost two years, and I love the ease with which I can add to an existing design," said Bissel. "Making quick edits is crucial to the movie production process and this software delivers on its promise of ease and accessibility."
