Shock & Awe

I decided to do this one a few of reasons..


First for practice,.. I wanted to incorporate a little more photoshopping into video,..figure out faster ways of doing so. Plus I wanted to play around with using a particle system as an outward explosion. See how real it can be. Not bad,.. I feel like if I added more layers to the explosion and adjust some timing and saturation it could look very real,..but in this case I kinda want to keep it a little cheesy,..seeing how I’m blowing myself up! The less real and the more cheesy,.. the less my family freaks out about it :)


Second I’m about to fix up some electrical in the house just seemed appropriate.....

WARNING,..Rated N ...for not little ones :)


Happy Holidays everyone

Done!

So this is my last week on this,..all the finals comps are due. Textures are created and my comps are composited! With all the craziness of in October I come away feeling pretty good about the work,..yet I still have so much to improve on and figure out,..but it was fun. Next up is Match Moving and Production lighting,..Yes!...



In all rights it should have been a fast comp to do but with the crazy structure it seemed to drag on and on! Plus working in HD sometimes is render hell!... but so much fun,...learned a lot and look forward to using many of these elements to do a Halloween video contest next year! Fun Fun!

Project Update

Well,...coming along so far. Still tweaking some transitions within the ghost energy that stick out too much. There is some timing issues still at hand and also I want to add some subtle shake and noise,...Last I’ll start adding the audio.....
