This matte appears as an airplane flyover shot. I worked with compositor Andrea Caretta to break out the layers, and he put together this shot in Nuke.

Here's an example of how the layers looked in Andrea Caretta's Nuke file

A few matte paintings I had the opportunity to create for DreamWorks' Fast & Furious: Spy Racers.
Although most of my responsibilities were Visual Development, I also got the chance to try my hand at some matte paintings that appeared in the show almost exactly as I painted them. This was an amazing learning experience for me and I have to thank compositor Andrea Caretta for guiding me through the process and teaching me how to break out layers for parallax in Nuke.
