THE LAST SAMURAI
A very complex shot representing a Tokyo street with the Imperial Palace in the background.
The live action plate shot on location transforms into 3D foreground buildings (created by Flash Film Works). For this shot we created a 6K multiplane matte painting of the Imperial Palace and the city behind the 3D foreground.
The matte painting without the 3D foreground.
A detail of the matte painting in actual resolution.
