Prague - Podolí 1918 / MATTE PAINTING
One of the most difficult scenes for me was the panorama from the historical Prague fortress Vyšehrad. The changes from today's situation were dramatic. Today this part of Prague is much more built up than at the beginning of the twentieth century. I created this location in several variations and seasons (day, night, summer, winter, spring, autumn...).

Taking into account the story and the director's comments, I have reworked some of the realities later and they don't exactly match the actual layout of the time. In the case of the panorama, for example, it was a much smaller industry than shown in the film Some houses are missing and others are present, etc... Otherwise, I was thinking of very small details, such as the floating of wood from the Sumava mountains, etc..
The next example shows how I changed the size and environment of one building "Skvor's Villa". Some retouching and scene adjustments can be seen here. Many of the scenes were routine. In this case, our team of VFX artists made retouches or replacements of some objects and panoramas.
