In the same way as in Making Of: NeoNoir Town Model, Making Of: Matte Painting focuses on the matte painting and painted backgrounds used to make chroma key in sci-fi movies. There too, materials and images are recycled to create an immersive space. The desert-like look of the space emphasizes the interval between temporalities: the tabula rasa.
