Although in the United States and in England is where the fields of special effects have been developed in a more forceful way, also in other countries they have carried out all kinds of VFX work. Matte glass paintings and miniatures tricks have been in use since the early 40´s all around the World.
On this page, I will be adding Countries, Movies, and Technicians as I will get to know and learn about them. If anyone has some piece of information related to some country or artist, I would love to hear about it.
The history of matte painting in the United States is so huge that it is almost impossible to show on a single site. For the British matte painting on films, I have created a summarized timeline.
