View Full Version : Need matte painter for moon/mars project

06-01-2005, 12:11 PM
We are in prepro on a short film that will be lensed in 4K digital (with HD as backup). I am looking for matte painters who are looking to add to their reel - the project will be unpaid, credit and reel only, but should provide some good demo reel shots. I am primarily looking for someone who can do realistic space scenes - Moon surfaces, Mars surfaces and the occasional interior set extension of a Crew Exploration Vehicle.

A synopsis and proposal of the project, "Postcards From The Future" can be found here:

There are currently about 12-18 slated matte painting or 2.5D mattep shots currently with an early fall delivery deadline, so several painters would probably be needed.

If this sounds interesting to you, I can be reached at mahalobay@gmail.com

Hi guys,

I'm back with an update and a request for assistance from a few more matte painters :)

We lensed our project last year as the first project to shoot with the production model of the Dalsa Origin. Pushing a true all-digital workflow, and we now have a locked edit with visual effects work in progress, and we are planning to deliver a 4K resolution digital master.

I am looking for a few more matte painters that can help create backplates for some of the greenscreens - specifically matteps of the surface of the Moon, including small base and u-habs, as well as some Mars surface shots and a few interior 2.5D matteps.

You can catch our work up until this point in the trailer on our site:


This is a labor of love. If you've ever felt like helping to change the world a tiny tiny bit, I look forward to your help. Thanks,
