Lightbulb DMP Tome of Knowledge


Hio All,

While cleaning up the forum, I found many threads have similar subjects and links. My aim in this thread, is to gather all of the disparate pieces of information from ages past and from many years of posting from the community into one single thread.

Please post here any links you may find that is inspirational to digital matte painting whether it be about history, great artists, visual effects studios, applications in movies/television/games/web mediums or tutorials and support links such as texture websites. I will then edit this original top post and add it to the collective. Below are all of the links that I have merged together for this thread thus far. Happy sharing everyone!
**All Links should be working, please report if they are not**

http://www.stopmotionanimation.com/forum/topics/matte-painting-section

For those of you interested in the backbone of DMP, there is a Traditional Matte Painting forum at: http://www.stopmotionanimation.com/...ainting-section

However, the entire forum seems to have gotten an upgrade resulting in all the old threads disappearing. The owners still have the original content offline but unfortunately it won't be restored anytime soon without the proper interest. If you are keen about Matte Painting I encourage you to voice your opinion and support the request to restore the Traditional Matte Painting Tomb of Knowledge.

It contains important and unique content from well respected industry professionals. The documentation and information shared was one of a kind behind the scenes data, significant for the history of Matte Painting. Matte Painting is the original visual effect and actually older than the movie camera itself. Losing the type of discussions this section contained would be a blow to film-making itself.

Members range from Matte Painting enthusiasts all the way to such legends as Craig Barron or Rocco Gioffre. Some of the information included:
http://rwufilm.blogspot.ca/2010/11/...g-timeline.html
or
http://www.oocities.org/es/britishvfx/british-vfx.html
and
http://disneysrobin.blogspot.ca/201...-ellenshaw.html
as well as making the community aware of new interviews:
http://www.agypsylife.com/michaelpangrazio.html
and
http://www.fromscripttodvd.com/harrison_ellenshaw.htm

Another benefit was finding out about Matte Paintings on display at art shows and galleries, such as:
http://www.ellenshaw.com/newsletter.../LACMA_crop.jpg
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is presenting an exceptional exhibit dedicated to the legendary director, Stanley Kubrick. This extensive 13,000 square foot retrospective features scripts, personal letters, set models, costumes, cameras, lenses, photographs, props and more. Included in the collection, and for the first time in public exhibition, is the spectacular Rome establishing shot matte painting by Peter Ellenshaw for the film Spartacus (1960).
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-0aCj48DQV...ta-collage4.jpg
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2SUF4FrDF...cus-detail6.JPG
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Ld-XFlftg...cus-detail1.JPG
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0RB85DIXC...cus-detail9.JPG
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-w1guTjmue...cus-detail8.JPG

The greatest treasure of this Matte Painting section however is the image library. You'll find amazing things like:
Mike Pangrazio 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' warehouse set extension
http://www.hollywoodhardware.de/pics/raiders-matte.jpg
Lighting reference
http://bombsite.com/images/attachme...aiders_body.jpg
Doug Ferris 'Seven Years in Tibet' village telescope POV pan
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a44/Glazy67/Matte.jpg
Detail
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_tw5hXrbf1...detail2CU04.jpg
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_tw5hXrbf1...detail1CU03.jpg
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_tw5hXrbf1...Doug+Ferris.jpg
Ralph McQuarrie 'Star Wars' reactor shaft
http://galeon.com/ilmmatteminiat/st...fMcQuarrie2.jpg
http://galeon.com/ilmmatteminiat/st...ftMcquarrie.jpg
http://galeon.com/ilmmatteminiat/st...EATH-SHAFT2.jpg
and information on the first projected matte
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-QoiJNXqIG.../s1600/hook.jpg

Furthermore, this doesn't have to be limited to old movie mattes but there's also an appreciation for today's Translite Matte Paintings that are still being utilized by some directors on set! On some productions nowadays, the director might request real translite backdrops for a number of shots, which are physically placed behind the actors during the shoot. DMP artists paint these digitally at a high resolution with Adobe Photoshop, which then gets printed out as large boards that are used on set.
Not quite the same as oil on glass but extremely fascinating in my point of view. Especially, considering today's industry. So, I wanted to let you guys know that the spirit lives on.

In the end digital Matte Painting serves the same purpose as traditional Matte Painting did, and there are numerous examples of the same techniques being masterfully applied in the digital realm:
Wayne Haag 'Fellowship of the Ring' fellowship leaving from Rivendell
http://www.ankaris.com/blog/wp-cont...tr_107_full.jpg
Detail
http://www.ankaris.com/blog/wp-cont..._2_detail02.jpg

There are some other very successful DMPs that in my opinion display the same qualities as the old masters.
Some examples:
Dimitri Delacovias 'The Golden Army' chamber of the Golden Army
http://www.digitalmatteworks.com/_w.../wp8c0f7480.png
David Gibbons 'Golden Compass' fields approaching London

Thumbs up

That's an awesome plethora of matte painting information Milan, thanks so much!! There's just so much history to preserve and learn from to apply to VFX work today. I'll be adding this to the collective today.

MP Tome of Knowledge

I think the MP Tome of Knowledge should be like an ongoing collection of inspiring Matte Painting work. Members of the community should post their work that they are proud of as well as any Matte Painting related stuff that inspires them.
Just like Ken did for that matter. Awesome job, Ken. Nice Matte Painting breakdowns! Hope to see your new reel soon.

Traditional MP

You guys might enjoy hearing that they started restoring the traditional Matte Painting archives at http://www.stopmotionanimation.com/forum/topics/matte-painting-section

It is not complete but already gives access to some great previous posts.
Check it out sometime if you're a fan of real paint; and especially Mike Pangrazio.
