Matte paintings for Patrick Melrose (Sky Atlantic)
It's not every day that you are asked to send a window-lock fumbling Benedict Cumberbatch twenty floors up, lest he succeeds, he's going to hurl himself out of it. (I'll hold the spoilers.)
For the recent Sky Atlantic series Patrick Melrose, in which Benedict ticks off one of his bucket-list roles as the eponymous anti-hero, Cambridge based visual effects company VineFX was on board to help transform live-action shots of Glasgow into period correct 1980's New York. In the role of digital matte painter, I was given a number of shots to digitally enhance so that Glasgow's modest five storey buildings would soar into skyscrapers and the streets turned into avenues stretching to the horizon.

But that wasn't all. Prior to Melrose, Vine FX was asked to help turn shots of South Africa into Ancient Greece, including painting the entire city of Sparta on a mountain. Below is a series of before and after images, and some process videos, enjoy.
