New Toys

For a long time now I've been itching to get into some Compositing action with After FX and live action footage. I think its something we just have to explore at tafe. Mainly because we don't have to add to the course to do it. We have lots of ideas about new stuff we could teach, but often its a case of "how can we fit it in?".

But in this case we already learn about Traditional, Flash, 3D and After FX animation. Its just a matter of bringing it all together, hardly any new content required.

One ingredient has been missing, a digital video camera. I'm trying to get one sorted for the Tafe, but seeing as how QUT finally came through with some consistent pay checks I've gone out and bought one for myself too. Here is my first go at putting together some 3D and Live action. Can you believe I did this in an afternoon?!?!

After FX Rocks!

Hahaha, that's way awesome. Did you film with a static camera and add the camera moves in After Effects? Very effective, and the girly scream is chillingly real.
