The task for contestants is to create a matte painting image that shows scale changes, whether it be distance variation -- that is, near the camera -- to things far away, or scale variation.
(Matte paintings from the feature film Avatar created by “Large vs. Small” judge Kent Matheson.)
The judges for the completion include an all-star cast of digital artists working on some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters: Frederic St-Arnaud, David Burroughs Mattingly, Ronn Brown, Alp Altiner, Kent Matheson, Jaime Hernández Jasso, Lubos Gerardo Surzin, Jorik Dozy and Rich Mahon.
