Default Hayday Music Video Matte - 12-19-2008, 09:11 AM

Hello Folks,

It has been about a year since I last shared some of my work on this forum.
A lot has happened since, and especially Matte Painting has evolved a lot.

I painted this for a 'Mr. Hayday' Music Video sometime this year. Alchemist Pictures and the director gave me a lot of artistic freedom because although they had a certain feel to it that they wanted to achieve.

The brief was rather challenging but lots of fun. The director asked for a big opening cityscape vista shot. A massive aerial view of a steampunk neo-Tokyo, set in late afternoon. A Future-Tokyo that had gone through some kind of Victorian transformation. It had to look neon, and futuristic but also dirty and Victorian. A big city with lots of neon signs but mixed with a real industrial Victorian, red brick, iron, Manchester-type aesthetic. Lots of chimney stacks, smoke etc.
Because all the opening shots have an afternoon feel to them and I couldn't derive from that for continuity reasons, mixing the industrial smokey stuff with a warm afternoon set was the hardest part.

All in all this was one of those really great creative projects where one can actually paint and experiment a lot artictically. I painted the sky from scratch and went from there.
The final composite has lots of smoking chimneys and some cars roaming around.
