A small collection of Matte Paintings I created for David Lumsden’s short film, BOAT, which earned me a BAFTA Scotland New Talent Award for Design 2015. I worked on the project from Jan 2011 - July 2012 and created around 80 Mattes for the 15 min short film. The production team was very small, so I had to also act as my own Art Director and was responsible for the overall mood, feel and environment design of the film itself. This was made possible by maintaining constant communication with the Writer/Director of the film, David Lumsden, and using the script itself as my brief by breaking it down into manageable scenes to complete the work at hand.
The actors and water references shown here aren't the final composites and were used for placement purposes only to help the VFX Crew later on.
