Matte Painting Workshop at IDMAa 2015

On Saturday October 24, 2015 I will be teaching a one-day Matte Painting Workshop from 8:00 am- 5:00 pm at this years iDMAa Conference held at the Digital Media Center at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN.

For this workshop, we will be creating a shot using matte painting set extension techniques, where we will completely transform a modern city street into a “Dieselpunk” cityscape.  “Dieselpunk” is a genre similar to "Steampunk", but instead of Victorian-era steam power, it combines the aesthetics of diesel-based 1940’s technology with retro-futuristic super science. 

The workshop will begin with an introduction to matte painting and an overview of modern techniques, then concept ideas and deliver a finished matte painting by the end of our day.

Advanced knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and photo editing and compositing within are required.
