This matte was created for a CocaCola spot that appeared on the Oscar telecast for 1991. The idea was to recreate a sort of cheesy '30's effects shot. I was given about a week to deliver the completed shot, including rain and lightning effects. We found a rubber bat to matte in and some pre-existing rain elements. To deliver on time, I resorted to dip testing my wedges in a prostar (the lab was closed) and making picks off of the negative. Worked.
