In 2012 i worked alongside Copa Network artists on "Princess of China", Coldplay / Rihanna music video directed by Adria Petty / Alan Bibby.

Project involved creation of different digital environments.
For one of these settings i prepared a big panorama matte painting that was eventually substituted with another one.
The work on that painting was pretty complex, involving a lot of 3D work inside Eon Vue.

I decided to create a realistic fly over so i brought everything inside Nuke 3D space and rebuilt the shot, combining original 3D renders with Maya / Vue atmosphere / clouds work and standard matte painting / compositing techniques.

I prepared a Making Of video of the workflow, together with sample frames from final animation.
