Matte Paintingfor Film Production
When you’re creating a matte painting for film production and you’re provided with a plate that already has foreground and/or mid-ground elements, your goal will be to create an extension and/or the backdrop of the final image. Sometimes you’ll be given the plate photography with an actor in front of a green screen stage, where there may be some basic mid-ground elements and markers on the green screen that are used as a guide for perspective.
