1) First use of  photogrammetry in movie - CGI first-person image-based modeling technique. Wire-frame 3-D models were created from photographs or real, still objects. The photos were then reemployed as texture maps, augmented with additional paint work. This allowed for high-speed, photo-realistic camera movements around (or inside and through) objects - and other seemingly impossible feats. Techique later use in The Matrix (1999).

2) Directed by Roland Emmerich.

3) First video game with photogrammetry is The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (2014).
