The following is one of the matte paintings I created for the Ilta-Sanomat spot. The art direction called for a Victorian-type industrial building. A 3D model of the scene was modeled, shaded and lit. This material was used as a base for the matte painting. The 3D model also served as a guide for the green-screen shoot in order to extract correct camera angles. The greenscreen shoot itself resulted in filmed "workers" which were later composited over the matte painting. Moving machine parts were rendered as separate passes and inserted into their respective positions at the compositing stage. This saved time as we only rendered animated parts and did not need to calculate the heavy 3D scene for each and every frame throughout the animation.
