EMINEM VIDEO – COACHELLA FESTIVAL

Blackbird, a Sydney VFX company, got in touch with me to help out with this project.  A video was to be produced for the artist Eminem who was performing at the Coachella festival of music this year. This video would be projected on a massive screen at the back of the stage. Time was really tight.

The idea was to recreate an iconic Detroit factory. My job was to create the original matte painting of the front view of this factory looking new, in its heyday and they would make it look decayed and old using all sorts of CG effects and eventually would get destroyed. It was more a texturing job than a matte painting as a 3d model was provided and was to be used as a guide. Here it is an article about this project : http://www.campaignbrief.com/2018/04/blackbird-vfx-sydney-creates-v.html

This is the master matte painting of the factory in Detroit that I did for the job. I had to work at very high resolutions.
