A little silly but...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bz1GOlc24RMI think the 'turn to water' was good enough and went for a simple option of displacement with a stock video.I tried it with caustics but liked the clear look a little better.
@DafterThings The water effect definitely turned out great! Especially liked the drumming fingers bit with a plastic formed hand ?
That was loads of fun!
Nice. Love the sign over the door, too!
@tddavis Thanks. It was always going to be good enough BUT I would love to have morphed the image. I think it's doable. I might have even tried the 'morph' tool I have had for years. If anybody finds an easy way to do it I would be interested. @filmsensei Glad you liked it. I tried some new voices and accents so hope they worked.@stargazer54 I try to put things like that in but often find they never get caught on camera. There is a corkboard with Dafter Things flyers on it behind 'Airman but it was never in shot in focus
Besides the excellent story gags I like the "Founded" sign and newspaper articles.
'Air man... Groan. Hahaha!
Fun stuff as always! I caught the "Dafter Things" sign on the wall, and love the "Airman" gag.
Thank you gents.It's odd. I thought it would be good to put a working clock above the door that changed in time to the video.I doubt anybody would have noticed and, frankly, it's not very funny. I then started worrying about having to mask around it so tried to take it off tearing the background. Having to hide the mark I considered the dedication plaque but then had to think what to write on it. After all that, it is the thing most people have commented on even after I spent hours trying to get Hydro to turn into water I didn't know how much to push the 'Airman joke so, in the end, I wanted it to be a little obvious. I can't explain why Sarge didn't pick up on it though.
The second time I watched it, I cracked up at the "Bad news for Mr. Tiddles" headline... He can blooming just stay up there! Hahaha!
Well, the turn to water did look good. It's just more fun pointing out background Easter Eggs. ?
There had to be a 'Cat stuck up tree' story in a local village newspaper. I'd be interested if there are similar newspapers in the US. *Very* local news so they cover ridiculously trivial items.As for the plaque : It's a good thing. The clock would have caused some effort, wasn't very funny and would likely go unnoticed. I just like how circumstances and a change to make things easier for myself turned out to be well received. It was a little by luck but, if it worked, who cares? :-)
