Default new mattes for film commercials - 07-12-2005, 12:14 PM

hey guys, let me show you my latest work in matte painitng field, we did 2 film comercial for a famous movie theatres in mexico, the original resolution is HD 1920 but the director wanted a 2:35 aspect so this is how it looks, the first one I have a 3d base model for perspective reference and in the second one I had to use camara mapping for a little dolly that the camera required, the third one the director wanted a peter pan stylized night so I came up with this cloudy night , check out the breakdown videos of each matte painting to get a clearer idea and to see the final shots with actors. (they are a little bit large but they worth the download )

Great shot design,
Did you design the shot or did the director plan it all?

Impressive james, how long was each production? Definetly cavern scene would my favorite as well. Thanks for the breakdowns man.

hey guys thanks for your answers, the production of the cave painting took me about 3 weeks to complete, one animator at our studio did the scropion animation and I had to give texture and render to it as well, the building perspective took me a week it was definitly easier than the other paintings, thans for your patient on downloading the videos I told you they are great for giving you a clearer idea for the final shots

Hello, Jaime. I'm new here and I'm not a matte painter. However, I've been in commercial photography, film and video for 30 years, so I guess I'm as qualified as anyone to leave a few comments.

First of all, your work is outstanding. Frankly, I'm in awe of you people (matte artists), I admire your work greatly. And this is what brings me to make the following comment regarding the last image--the boy and girl on the edge of cliff overlooking the bay...

The color of the moon and the color of light from the moon does not match. The moon is a bit warm (as is the light falling on the actors), but the light falling on the clouds, water and cliff is white.

Second item, based on the light source (the moon), the lighting on the actors should be reversed. As they are standing, the boy's face should be lit and girl's face in shadow... or they should have been flipped on the plate.

The first two mattes are wonderful. I especially like the cave shot! Great work! I look forward to seeing more.

Jay
