33 Outstanding Examples of Matte Painting

advertisement

Matte painting is considered logically as invisible environments for film. Visual effects shot so realistic that might make the audience think they were filmed in location. Matte Painting is a technique used to add wonder and excitement to a static landscape, set or distant location which filmmakers use to create an illusion to the environment in a movie scene or film that would otherwise be too expensive or impossible to build or visit. The scene might be an exotic setting, some other time period or an unbearable camera angle, but the outcome effect will look like a real place, photographed with real camera.

Today we present 33 Outstanding Examples of Matte Painting masterpieces that are seamless and realistic visual effects and were an integral part of the director’s vision. The prominent genre of design can make us think that we are travelling to the past and as well as to the future. Try to browse this list and check out the stunning and dynamic outputs from combining 3D, photographic elements and hand-painted elements. Enjoy!
