33 Outstanding Examples of Matte Painting

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.
