Buried in the background of the new studio for TV2 News in Bergen you will find the backdrop environment that I designed and prepared over the summer of 2012.
The brief required black and white imagery to work with coloured front lighting. In order to achieve the best visual results, I worked on producing a design that would allow broad tonal range but with sufficient contrast to work well with the front lighting effects. The main lower portion of the scene is printed, but for the upper portion I prepared artwork for virtual lightboxes that are incorporated into a virtual set extension to be managed by VizRT.
As on other recent designs, I have made use of forced perspective techniques.
Images of the finished set can be found on the TV2 website
