oliver stone project: paintings come to life on the big screen (or little screen, depending on your tv size)

I just wrapped up an exciting project for Oliver Stone’s new docu-mini-series on Showtime,Untold History of the United States. I created a full hand-painted alphabet to be used for all promotional materials connected with the series along with several large-scale abstract acrylic paintings and splatters to serve as the backdrop for the text. I lit and photographed all painted type and backdrops immediately upon execution to allow for the still wet sheen and thick painterly textures to shine through despite the fancy digitized layering and animation--very cool--I am super pleased with the results. Promo video below for your perusal...for best resolution tune in to Showtime (just started airing over the weekend). More on the behind the scenes process at Behance
