Once again Painting Practice returned for a spot of digital matte painting for the current Vodafone bees commercial. Our matte painting team were commissioned by Passion PIctures to fulfil a series of adjustments to BG plates and to design and create an entire CG surf shop.

The CG Surf shop plays a fairly big part in the film both at a distance and up close so we had to make sure that the modelling was detailed enough to hold up close to camera. Some fine tuning was made to our renders and a few extra tweaks were made by our matte painters to get the realism just right.

Numerous subtle changes were also made to the background plates to reflect the world of the Vodafone Bees – if you recognise the location you might be able to spot the difference!
