Fear of flying stomach churns to the edge of laughter…
The wacky comedy The Zaletchiki was a colorful collaboration on a wacky movie. I worked mostly on two locations and a few stylized shots as a specialist in 3D matte painting and camera mapping. This project was a less time intensive but longer term collaboration. You can see two sample shots below.
The GEORGIAN ALLEY
The first and most complex shot was the Georgian city. It was dominated by a stylized street with houses in a "didactic cut". The location was built in Barrandov studios as a backdrop. Some parts of the scene were missing and needed to be completed (continuation of the street, horizon, sky, etc.). Because of the dynamic camera roll and the large changes in perspective, I used an advanced method of 3D matte painting and CGi. I also used photos from my extensive database. Some of the locations I shot in Prague.
MiG / 3D MATTEPAINTING
The second location was a barracks for soldiers (actually the Prague Sokol on Kampa). In this scene we had to create a non-existent monument with a MIG21 aircraft on a pedestal. By combining painting, 3D graphics and photomontage I created a sculptural element that could be used in multiple perspectives.
