– Hi Mathilde, can you explain us your course?
After a degree S, I studied computer graphics during 4 years in Supinfocom Valenciennes.
After the getting my certificate, I postulated in BUF.
– How did you arrive to BUF and what films did you supervise there?
Lasting during my third year in Supinfocom, I made my training period at BUF, I right away loved this company, that’s why I went back to it next year.
On my arrival at BUF I worked first during 1 years on advertising, then on films: “2046″, “MY ANGEL”, “BATMAN BEGINS”, “HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE”. I supervised some advertising and then some sequences on films such as “SILENT HILL”, “THE PRESTIGE” and “BABYLON AD”. Finally, I supervised the film “Ricky” directed by François Ozon.

Let’s Dance “promos”
Important Looking Pirates finished off 2009 with a trailer and print campaign for Let’s Dance – one of Sweden’s most popular TV shows.
ILP did three promo spots with accompanying prints where each dancer was was enhanced by a unique effect.
Art directed by Brokendoll, each wing was composed by a variety of CG fluid, cloth and particle elements to make it look dynamic and fun. With no physical rules to follow there was an excellent opportunity to be creative, making the male dancer Stefan Sauk’s effect very dramatic and the shot with Elin Kling more feminine and vibrant.
A nice collaboration between ILP and North Kingdom. Nice work!
The well known Swedish interactive design firm North Kingdom hired us to create high-end VFX for “Teamgeist” – a campaign site for Adidas. Our task was to create the transformation effect when the team members turn into faceless players.

Inspiring Matte paintings.
Matte painting is a visual effects process which combines 3D rendering in programs such as 3DSMax, Maya, and Fusion, along with hand-painted and photostock elements to create a seamless visual environment. For feature films, this matte painting environment is then used along with camera techniques to composite the actors into a virtual 3D scene while maintaining natural lighting and realistic environments. Matte paintings have been used in many films, from the Wizard of Oz, all the way up to James Cameron’s smash hit, Avatar.
This post will showcase 30 incredible matte paintings from the most talented matte painters around, including Dylan Cole, Dusso, and Frederic St-Arnaud. Movies showcased include Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, The DaVinci Code, and Sin City. This post isn’t necessarily an endorsement of the film, but instead, focuses on the stunning visual effects displayed.
If you’re wondering why there are no matte paintings from Avatar here, most of the matte paintings have not yet been cleared for release. However, you can check out some DVDs from the artists involved over at The Gnomon Workshop, who recently saluted the artists of Avatar.
Enjoy the artworks, and special thanks to all the artists for creating breathtaking works of art that leave us dazzled film after film.
