Black Panther

For the Mount Bashenga sequence which involved 400+ shots I created 2 day-sky dome assets to cover all possible light conditions. In addition I made a Google Earth style Wakanda world map which determined the geography of the world beyond the set, laying out the savanna, mountains, jungle and water bodies. I researched relevant plant species for the varying terrain, tree placement was driven by distribution maps derived from the world map. The Wakanda atlas was also used as a diffuse texture determining the colour of both the ground and the foliage. Later on DMP projections were added to the CG for extra detail.

The first trailer used DMP landscape which was later replaced by environment assets.
