When you watch a movie, do your eye-centric reality and the film’s worlds ever meet? The answer might be more than just magical. What we see on screen is often created with careful planning behind it all – how does this work exactly for movies where there are no actors or sets but rather an imagined world through photography/ negative footage as well digital matte paintings (DMPs)? In order to make these films come alive at every turn of their narrative timeline, our favorite directors need teams that can answer many questions: what atmosphere should reign throughout? Who will play which role in front-of camera shot’? And most importantly – How exactly will this be created? Perhaps these and other questions will be answered in this post on how things are on the set when the cameras are turned off.
