Hi there

Does anyone know of films where big photographic backdrops have been used in studio to simulate real backgrounds outside a window.

Prefferably recent films.

I seem to have difficulty finding any. Perhaps because there are so well made?

Many thanks
Marcel

People have commented on the use of translights in "The Departed" for the apartment and police station sets.

A forest scene in front of Michael Caine's cottage in "Children of Men" was shot on stage with a backing.

"Just like heaven" used it. Okada talked about it in AC if I remember correctly. We used it on "Varg", a Swedish feature shot by J├Ârgen Persson that will go up on the big screen in January here in Sweden.

Entourage uses it for the agent's office.

Hustle also has one on permanent standby on the Kudos stage in Bermondsey.

Looks like Hallam Foe also used one recently: http://www.getyourpe...ryboarding.html
