Our primary focus centered around the iconic River Thames, a bustling waterway teeming with life and industry.

Bringing Saint Paul's Cathedral to Life in a period Matte Painting was an exciting challenge.

Then, we laid out the shot with 3D building assets and finally, we created the final matte painting to make Saint Paul the highlight of the shot.
