    Thanks for the compliments! I live in San Francisco, which is near the Maverick beach surf contest in Half Moon Bay. It was a few years ago and I didn't plan on going, so I didn't have a good viewing spot. (BTW people who did have a good viewing spot, down on the beach, were in danger of being washed away by the waves!) I just ended up getting shots of a cool looking military structure. Last week I remembered the footage when I was thinking about doing a weekend VFX project. I used HitFilm to do all the VFX and editing. Its the first time I used the editor and I really like being able to turn each shot into a composite and then have that instantly translated back to the editor timeline. Very convenient!

    @Shigg420 Congratulations on resurrecting a 2012 thread... It's got to be one of the oldest ones I've seen.

    He already tells us where it was taken in the comment above yours.

    The light beam was most likely done using the lightning effect in HitFilm.
