RACING STRIPES (2005)
An entertaining kids' movie about a zebra believing he is a racehorse, and with the help of his friends, he achieves his lifetime dream. He wins the horserace.
We were commissioned to execute 20+ matte paintings of the racetrack and the surrounding locations. Only a small portion of the area around the grandstand was originally built as a set in South Africa. We had to recreate the rest of the racetrack and the surrounding hills for a stylized Kentucky look.
