When you want to make an epic trailer, like the one we have been talking about for months, you need some footage of a camera flying through the mountains. It’s pretty much a requirement. For this shot we bought some nice stock footage of a camera fly-through but we wanted to add a little more evil to the countryside. So we used a 3D camera track and added a matte painting of some jagged mountains and even used particular to build a spooky evil Myst across the land. The great thing about this promo we are making is the wide variety of shots and techniques needed to finish each shot so expect some expansive tutorials and information. More to come soon!

Making circuits! After trying to create something large, I thought I should try to make something small! I started by taking a circuitry texture and placing it on a plane in Element 3D. I used the texture in the Glossiness channel and the reflection channel to give the pathways a metalic look. Next I built the […]
Continuing the Element 3D fun! This started as a desert scene and soon turned into a cloud city! Typical. Part of the fun of these render projects is just creating random stuff and designing without a specific goal. It’s actually been really challenging and exciting to try various techniques. In this scene, I used an aerial […]
My 10 Cloverfield Lane Contribution
Earlier this year I had the chance to work on 10 Cloverfield lane, on this horrifying matte painting and composite. Many image-searches for road kill have scarred my mind! As always it was a pleasure to work with Dan Trachtenberg. My work on 10 Cloverfield Lane! #nightmares #mattepainting A photo posted by Video Copilot (@andrewkramer) […]
