  1. Hi there, 15 years ago me an some friends of mine worked on a corny little fantasy project (http://www.candlekeep.com/library/articles/tdod.htm) that was never really finished. I am now working to restore one scene of that project to use it a a template for my film music compositions. Although I am making good progress in re-cutting and dubbing that scene, I am still lacking a visual fire effect for one very short sequence and don't how to implement that kind of vfx. Here is that short sequence: Do you know any small tool/program (best free- or trialware) to quickly create some kind
  2. Hey All, I am directing a short comedy, "Cowlick" (https://www.facebook.com/cowlickfilm), and I need my lead character's hair to stick up like alfalfa from "The Little Rascals." The cowlick will pop up while on camera (meaning we need it to go from shellacked to his head to pointing up sky-high). We are thinking that attaching some type of fishing wire or thread to a well gelled "cowlick" might do the trick, but wanted to see if anyone had better suggestions. We have a test shoot coming up and will be able to try just about anything. My lead's hair is jet black. Thanks so much!
  3. Hello everyone. I recently shot a music video and have run into a bit of an issue with the highlights. One of the hero props on this one was a set of floating, glowing orbs a la John Carpenters "Starman". The characters had them in most scenes. Images attached.

I rated the camera at 1250 most of the time to lessen noise, but when dealing with extreme highlights went to 2000 to have the most headroom.

  5. Hi everyone. I am about to start the 2 years of film studies at LACC and my goal is to become a film ditrector. My likings, which used to be quite broad, have narrowed down to movies where especial effects are of the essence ( Life of Pi, Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.) My question is how much of SFXs a director must know in order to make the movie? Is he supposed to have a great deal of knowledge of this field before embarking in such kind of projects? Thanks.
  6. My question is how much of SFXs a director must know in order to make a movie? Is he supposed to have a great deal of knowledge in this field before embarking in such kind of projects? Do they teach special effects for directors? Is that something that the cinematographer must know? Thank you for your time.
