Star Trek: Into Darkness

The background cityscape was projected onto a 3D model to account for a slight parallax on this panning shot. The foreground ferry terminal building was treated as a separate painting and in turn split up into about 10 layers, each to be projected onto a separate card in comp.

Both paintings were put together for the benefit of display on this site.


The concept (mouse over image) on which this matte painting was based was created by Damien Mace.


Original dmp sizes: 8192 x 6224.  Projection & pan left to right with foreground parallax.
