"Between the glass plates, one could then encourage a puppet in stop-motion." How exactly does one 'encourage' a puppet???? 18.104.22.168 18:58, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
Matte painting in motion pictures
Matte Painting is one of the most important techniques of motion pictures. The current article is extremely rough and very incomplete. Anyone with working knowledge of matte paintings in motion pictures is encourage to expand on this article. Robert Elliott 18:36, 25 August 2007 (UTC) (Instructor at Wikiversity Film School.)
I would like to begin editing this page by adding an introduction to matte painting; correcting some technical inaccuracies under "Technique"; and add more "Trivia" and names under "Important Matte Painters." My source is Mark Cotta Vaz and Craig Barron's book, "The Invisible Art," which I worked on with them several years ago. I helped organize all the image information for the book and did some copy-editing as well. - --Utilizer (talk) 05:23, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
I updated this page to include more background history, removal of inaccurate technical descriptions, additional footnotes and references, internal links, and a screen-shot from "Raiders of the Lost Ark" that demonstrates a classic matte painting shot. --Utilizer (talk) 23:56, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
Image copyright problem with File:Government Warehouse.jpg
The image File:Government Warehouse.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check
- That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
- That this article is linked to from the image description page.
Chris Evans is notable but that list is of a first generation of traditional matte painters who are retired or no longer living. Evans is still working in the industry (on digital mattes). Perhaps a list of notable contemporary matte designers would be a good addition. --Utilizer (talk) 05:32, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
confusion of matte painting with matte superimposition technique
I think the current article confuses matte painting with traveling mattes, particularly the example:
- Birds flying over Bodega Bay, looking down at the town below, in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds.
