Following up on the brilliant visual essay written by RocketJumpFilm School, GLUE gives it’s two cents on state of VFX in film and when to mix practical with computer generated effects.
Today we would like to share a breakdown of how we can achieve any effect using green screen and CG elements to build any scene. This is how we can often help with safety training videos, enabling us to show scenarios which are too dangerous for a stunt actor.
When we think of CG liquids in an advertisement we often get images for bottled water but CG liquids are used in a wide variety of television and film. We look into the wide range of uses of liquid simulations in video production.
In the daily duties of a VFX artist, there are various tasks other than keying green-screen footage, placing environments around the keyed actors, or even creating effects such as explosions (who doesn’t love explosions?!).
This week, we look at the process of ‘keying’ or masking out an actor or prop from it’s environment, to be re-composited into a new environment. This technique has been in place for a number of years, from Hollywood blockbusters to daily TV Weather Forecasts…
GLUE helps to describe the process to explain how it’s all done!
We recently shot a music video which was really heavy on Visual Effects.
After lengthy processes of scripting, storyboarding and pre-visualization, we determined that a lot of the footage would need to be shot on a Green Screen.
There has been a revolution in filmmaking, we explain how previs is changing the visual effects world for the better. Many would argue that the process has revolutionised filmmaking, some of the most successful and visually stunning films have used and continue to utilise previs.
