The Ring

In order to mark a specific time in the movie in which Rachel knows she'll die, we needed a memorable and somewhat realistic play of light to occur as the sun moved behind a nearby tree. Matte World created the effect through means of a matte painted foundation and heavily composited additional sun, flare, shadow and exposure changes.


A sequence depicting the changes of light throughout the shot.



The "day" plate which shows Noah on the ferry traveling to what will become Moesko island.


This "Day for Night" shot was achieved with a matte painting of the island and lighthouse. The flash and water reflections all interact to add realism to the shot.
