The hit HBO mini-series "Mare of Easttown" stars Kate Winslet as a small-town detective, investigating the recent murder of a teenage mother and putting together the pieces of a disturbing puzzle. Each episode serves us an unbearably suspenseful and moody hour of television, with cigarette butts and tensions mounting. As the VFX Supervisor, Cristin's favorite scene to work on was the one in which Dawn goes out to the salt house in the hopes of paying someone off for info about her missing daughter. "The shots were almost all matte paintings and green screen," says Cristin. "We had a large number of reference photos, but none at the right time of day, and none had all the buildings, trees, and skies that the Director and Director of Photography wanted in the shots. Our matte painting team created these backgrounds in 2.5D and the compositors integrated them and brought them to life with more interactive lighting." The result is a beautifully haunting, dark and moody scene, perfectly in step with the rest of this captivating show.
