City Establishing Shot

Establishing production shot concept for the city in the film Downsizing. I basically did a paint-over of the original plate so we could visualize the city closer to the final product. Some of the most unknown artwork in the film industry is production art that comes in prod and post-prod. There's this massive misconception that after pre-prod ends all artwork stops when in reality it just continues throughout the project. This is one example of artwork during post-prod. I worked close to VFX Supervisor Lindy DeQuattro to achieve this particular image.
