I guess it was towards the end of high school when I first came about this video. Youtube was in its infancy if you can believe, and so was the content on it. Then this. I saw this...thing. With real effects, and music that was clearly stolen from a movie, in a setting that looks like some sort of automobile factory, where is that place, who are these kids, HOW DID THEY DO THIS?!?! It was awesome. It was 5 minutes of whoa. I saw this and decided that there was a place for my skills.
Naturally I tried to make something similar. I remember using a cracked version of premier to "export as a filmstrip" to hand draw the saber blades frame by frame. I don't think the task has gotten any easier, but certainly more accessible. I saw this and said "why can't I do this."
That is why, I say, seek out as many films as you can. Study them. Be inspired by them. Take notes on them. Learn from them. Become motivated by them. Most of all, enjoy them.
Hi everybody. I was looking to update some things on the website (hope you like the new look) and I wanted to add this section to add some new elements. A lot of what we do is rooted in our daily culture and since I love researching or finding out about new tools, trades, tips, films, technology, the "industry" and more, I thought I would use this space to share with you fine folks my findings. Right now this is in experiment mode, so lets see if I can keep up with it. I'll do my best to update as often as I can which is a challenge for those that know my schedule. Please feel free to add to the discussion if you're so inclined. The goal is to share with you film/video related content. Diehards only? Time will tell.
