Very clever. Nicely done. Also, the flying saucer one is excellent. :-)😀
Thanks @DataDesign ! I was really happy with how the flying saucer one turned out but I wish I could've found a way to correct the glare on the saucer. Maybe even use the Chrominator plugin to reflect the rocks in the asteroid field. Oh well.
Reworked a previous video to release as a vertical short on YouTube.
The original is here: https://youtu.be/JL3eAsfMw7A
I'm behind a couple of these so.
Dig the 10 second ad. Dig that 3D model.
Hah! Wasn't expecting the mustache to be punched right off!
I like the gag of "too late" and the imploding planet. Do prefer the horizontal framing, but I'm old!
@Triem23 thanks for the comments!
1- the saucer in the ad is actually a spray painted salad bowl. The asteroids are a model from prod crate.
2- the moustache thing was a team effort. My GF pulled a fishing line that was attached to the moustache to make it disappear. Actually, the green screen footage for this one is pretty funny. I then added the flying moustache in post.
3 - I'm old too! And I certainly prefer the look of the horizontal vid. I'm trying to build an audience for my channel and I'm trying new things. Unfortunately, reception-wise, that one is a dud LOL.
@DavidLamarre Just proof the vertical crowd doesn't get old-fashioned humor at all.
@tddavis @Triem23 there may be some truth to that!
Just started a new vertical video series with a homemade Cthulhu puppet called "Cthulhu tells it like it is".
Compositing, editing and grading in FxHome.
Sound editing in Vegas.
Some assets from Production Crate.
That is one ambitious puppet to make and works so perfectly for the vlog! Cthulhu has some savage observations! 🤣:)
@tddavis He doesn't hold back that's for sure. But he's not as mean as the star of another series I've been working on: The Trash Talking Boxer!
When Jim Henson meets David Cronenberg. A 10 second super short sci-fi body horror video.
Yup. That's "Henson meets Cronenberg," alright!
I see you and raise this Hitfilm-produced composite, "Kuato the Frog."
Bahahahaha. That's amazing! Total Recall is great but it might've been better with a Kermit cameo!
Thanks! I whipped that out last year when Twitter had the "That's not how it works" hashtag trending for a couple of days...
The Puppet News Network is on the air!
Bulge instead of caustics for the crystal ball.
Lots and lots of keying.
Woot! woot! One of my puppet films has been selected in a film festival! And tickets are on sale now!
It will also be projected on the side of a silo grain elevator 😜.
@DavidLamarre Congrats on the selection. Hope it goes over great at the festival. May it get great reviews and a packed audience.
Congrats! Very happy for you.
Can I just say that your compositing work on practical and visual effects is amazing?
Congratulations indeed on this! Being in festivals is a fun experience, especially in person ones!
Thanks @tddavis @Triem23 @FlyingBanana78 @DataDesign @Georgefilm !!!
And a special thanks to @FilmSensei @DafterThings and @Andy001z for their comments on the WIP version of the short. It convinced me that it was worth it to send it to a film festival.
@Georgefilm There's still lots of room for improvement in that regards... But I feel like I'm getting a bit better each videos I shoot and edit. Or maybe it's just the software updates!
That's great news, well done for having the guts to enter your work.
No rest for the wicked...
A longer video (by my standards)...
Len distort + drop shadow on the curtains for the master shots. Again, lots of compositing and keying.
Quick turnaround on this project. Written, shot and edited in a couple days only.
Very very funny and true!
Celebrations are in order! My short film Planet of the Socks has been picked up by a sci-fi film festival in Romania. Being in Canada, I won't be able to attend but if there's someone attending the Galactic Imaginarium Film Festival, I'd greatly appreciate feedback on the reception of the film :).
In the meantime, here's a pair of 10 sec. Shorts I did recently...
Congrats on having your entry added to the sc-ifi festival! Love your stuff. Timing is everything!
Thanks @Stargazer54 !
Timing is everything indeed.
A rooftop puppet duel... A bit of Hitfilm pro magic turns cardboard into a city.
