  2. I’m looking for a set designer and editor for my short film. I’m shooting a horror short film. I reside in Massachusetts. I’m looking for a video editor and set designer.
  3. Hello, I'm preparing to shoot a music video. I have an idea for a shot where you can see infinite space behind the object filled with colored or colorless mist. The reference shot is from the new Bladerunner trailer. My goal is to place a car on the foreground like it's in the middle of nowhere. Most of the shots will be inside the car but I need to sustain this look in the windows without green screen. How I can achieve that on a tight budget? Would it be easier to accomplish shooting outside or indoors? With dark or light background? Many thanks in advance!
  4. Hey everybody! As newcomer to the film, I released my first short film "The Whistle" two years ago. The short film hits the 500k clicks relatively quickly. I invested another year to write a story and create a second part. At the end of 2018, I shot the second part of the "The Whistle" series. Even this already counts 700k clicks on Youtube and became thus a worthy successor. In January, my latest low-budget project has started: "THE WHISTLE 3 | MARIA". It was a big challenge for me and my friends. A lot of time flowed into the post-processing because I wanted to create a completely new world
  5. Hey folks, Got a commercial coming up which I'm shooting and I'm wondering if there's a way to get this stop motion effect out of a digital film camera, either in camera or through post-production, instead of the more typical stills camera method. Assuming this is possible via digital film camera and that my concern is to get a sharp image every time, would the mean a narrow/low shutter angle and a normal frame rate (24 or more)? Or is my reasoning completely skewed here? When I think about it though it seems silly not to shoot this on a stills camera.
  6. HI all, I am currently working of music video and have various scenes where I need to overlay a computer face on an old monitor in after effects. The problem I have been having is that it looks a bit off to me, which you may be able to see from the example I've attached. I think this is in large part due to the shape which need to be three dimensional not looking right. I have used a bulge effect but doesn't seem to give the impression of a symmetrical rounded shape and I think looks slightly off quilter. If anyone has any ideas of how I could improve this I would be very intere

  8. 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

  10. Hey guys, long time lurker here but this is my first post. Feel free to move my post to the right forum if necessary So I got a script set in an airplane. It is a transcontinental flight, NY to Sao Paolo which are 90% of the time flying in big 767 or 777s (don't remember which one is which). These are usually in the 2-5-2 seating configuration I think. Big plane. And because of our budget we'll get to shoot in one of these: Bombardier CRJ 200 https://www.amaszonas.com/images/nuestra_flota/galeria/amaszonas_crj_200_34.jpg This is an indie short being made in Paraguay and we have t

  12. Hey Guys, This may be a very dumb question, but how does apple film their app and iPhone commercials without the hands shaking while holding the device? Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szrsfeyLzyg At first I thought they utilized two separate layers, one for the hand holding the device and one for the finger swiping, and comped the two together. The layer with the hand holding the device almost appeared to be a still image, but what confused me was that I saw shadow movement on it when the finger swipes... Do they have a rig attached to the phone to keep it steady or
  13. Greetings, First off, my apologies for not writing a shorter and more concise piece. I will revise this post as time permits - Think of this as a living document. During a recent creative meet for an upcoming short, the idea emerged to simulate parts of a living room appearing on fire during a dramatic dialogue scene The thought is to simulate fire illumination and smoke and composite pyro physical effects plates in during post. We will be shooting this in 8K anamorphic at low compression ratios Think of the end sequence of "Barton Fink" and some scenes from "Synec
  14. Greetings again, What are the effects of a haze filled set on front projection VFX techniques? Before I test myself, I'm reaching out instead of re-inventing a mistake :lol: The haze is meant for adding depth and the illusion of indoor smoke. This is for a static/locked shot meant to create the illusion of a living room on fire, with talent on a couch (think Syndoche NY, Barton Fink). My thought is: Since the projected light is in parallel to the recorded light, the evenly dense haze will appear brighter/more dense by reflecting light, will not create the appearance of light
  15. Hey Guys, I don't really have a vfx background, and it would be fantastic if you could help me out! Attached below is a still (and a link to a video) of what I am trying to achieve. I'm looking to shoot a music video that uses forced perspective (mainly band performance stuff), and I am not quite sure how to go about making it look right. To give a little more context, I'll be shooting with an A7sII camera. My questions are as follows: 1) Did they use a green screen for the people? 2) How do you make the person match with their background? I know lighting is a huge part of it, but I'm refer

  19. Hello! I'm shooting a short film on B&W 35mm (this is a strict decision of the director and I- it's set in the 1960s are we feel that shooting film is crucial to this story). We have quite a few scenes in a 'beach house' set where the windows look out onto the ocean. We will need to digitally project an ocean outside the windows but my concerns are - how do we get the brightest image so that the outside is overexposed than the inside? I know I will have to shoot wider open so the projector overpowers the light sources inside. we are thinking of putting up a giant white muslin aro

  24. Hello friends, I am trying to make a shot in which I wanna experiment with comping a 3d train with a live driver in it. I will be using after effects for this purpose but while experimenting with a rough footage I felt that the driver looks really flat & I was also not able to track them together properly. Though while having the final shoot of the driver in front of green screen the lighting might solve some of the issues, I still am not confident if it will appear as if the live driver is driving a 3d animated train. Any kind of help would be appreciated on this matter. If you guys have
