Default Nuit Blanche - 10-24-2011, 03:37 PM

Here's a matte painting I did for a short film called Nuit Blanche

Please hotlink the ACTUAL image - you'll get a much better response that way.

Be great to a cleaner / larger version - even the 'making of' movie on your site looks less grainy than this!

EDIT: Beautiful short film, BTW. Great environment and FX work. When it's B&W, highly contrasted and THEN compressed for web video, I don't think we're seeing it in it's full glory, though.

Thanks Alex,

I'm new here, still trying to figure out how to attach the image. Would you be able to tell me how you manage to do that?

As for the graininess of the matte, this is a render straight from the final video with grain added on top. The original matte before projection mapping was too crisp and clean, and since a lot was done in compositing to make things fit I decided to post the final instead.

I will take your advice and post the short film and the making of on the original link.
Thank you. :)

By the way, we ended up making a 3D Stereo commercial for Sony based on the original concept. You'll be able to see it in its full 3D glory in theatres around the world soon.

Hey - no worries.

You insert an image into a thread using the [ img ] [ / img ] tags - it's the same way for all BBcode forums (like this one), and there should be sticky thread at the top of the thread list that explains it in more detail.

It's a shame when there isn't an image in the thread directly, as it tends to be ignored when people have to follow links to external sites. At least yours is to your website, not to imageshack (yuck).

After seeing the short film, this looks a great piece of work. Almost ANY image with that level of contrast, grain and vignette would probably look a bit like this, though, so it's doing your matte painting a bit of a disservice to show it like this.

Awesome getting a gig like that from a short, but I can see why an advertising agency would see the potential. Nice work.

Hey, Pat Lau.
Let me just say "wow". Wow to the short film and to the "Two worlds commercial". Really inspiring.
As for the matte painting itself, some flaws may get hidden when doing high contrast black and white matte painting. In that way it is quite forgiving, but what matters is whether or not it works in the shot. Which it certainly does, and that's why this is a quality matte painting - serves its purpose.

Good job!

Thanks for sharing "Nuit Blanche". This is a beautiful,complex piece of work. It reminds me of David Lean's "Brief Encounter." The car hit is particularly nice.
