UPDATE 7 - Matte Painting Test
Just wanted to share a small "Matte Painting" test we did yesterday. Our friend Stipan (who is one of the best Croatian painters) came over to our studio and painted a quick test shot. And we totally had a blast doing it!
The purpose of the test was to have a crack at the technique and figure out how to light and film the painting.
Here's the process of the creation of the painting:
He scratched the paint away where the windows should be, and we back lit it with a single neon light. Here's a video of the final shot where I've added some searchlights, and a couple of flying cars:
We're really happy with how it turned out considering this was a pretty small painting. The real ones for the film will be four times bigger, and with much more details.
It really looks promising!!!
Hope you like it.
