I created the entire set for my Aardman Academy graduation film ‘Mattricide’.
The sets for this Hitchcockian thriller had their own story to tell as our heroine ran from the town square, through seedy streets to the safety of of her pastel palace.
The street scenes are inspired by East London, often strewn with dumped mattresses.
The brick walls are KAPA line foamboard. Bricks were carved using a 3D printed roller then painted with acrylic followed by a dirty wash.
The corrugated shutters were made from cardboard packaging sprayed silver. I added a few diluted paint washes to give a more manky look.
