Titanic

Matte World Digital created a digital matte painting for the end sequence of the film where survivors are picked up from the aftermath of the disaster. The Carpathia rescue ship approaches from the horizon at dawn with icebergs visible in the surrounding waters.

A traditional matte painting was created for the Carpathia itself, combined with a digitally painted dawn sky, icebergs and the ship's smoke element. An additional green-screened life boat was also added in the distance giving scale to the approaching ship.



The original live-action plate filmed at sea with a gyro-stabalized camera mount.


The final composite required difficult match moving to combine the many added elements with the scene.
