Our artists provided a number of digital background scenes, depicting various jungle and city locations around the world. We produced a number of green-screen comps, head shot replacements, and a sequence in which a headless woman’s corpse is thrown into a roaring fire. in particular a sequence depicting a scene from the Volturi’s past taking place in a Medieval Russian village for which Rodeo created the establishing matte painting. had actors on a partial exterior set, and Rodeo provided set extensions and matte paintings as seen at dusk, with a castle in the background.

They were able to extend the village with great continuity, all against very dramatic red skies. They also added fires and interactive light to this village scene, to give it a truly ominous feel. In addition, Rodeo also gave us VFX incorporated into a scene in which the mother of an immortal child is beheaded, with her body then thrown into a fire. In another scene, in which an image of Brazil is projected into Edward’s mind by another character, they provided a matte painting and a waterfall.
