Reality Crash Update

My test demo scene for the movie “Reality Crash” is coming along wonderfully. Today I got my first cut of the sound for the whole scene and it sounds great layed down with rough-cuts of some of the music. It’s all coming along quite well. We have a lot of talented people working together on this film and it really shows. Right now I have a locked picture cut that the post-sound designer and music composer are working from. I will soon send the picture out to get color corrected by my colorist. All of these elements coming together will help tell the story we are trying to tell.

I would include some pictures here but can’t yet as I don’t want to spoil anything for you.

Color correcting can help tell the story in an amazing way. It can cool an image down or heat it up or make it scary and dark or warm and light. How we shoot and color the image is again another way of telling the story.

In sound mixing and designing we are discovering new ways to aid in the sorry telling that were not in the script or in the original storyboard plan. They work so well at helping tell where we have been and where we are going that I could not imagine the story without them.

Finally the musical score really helps put the mood and feel that we should be having outside of the picture. My composer did an amazing job so far at hitting all the right notes to help tell the story in the way that a production of this caliber should be told.

I want to thank all the hard work that my crew has put into this film to make it what it is.. I have worked for 6 plus months on this project almost everyday thinking about it and working on ideas. It feels good to be nearing the end of production on the scene and even better to have new prospects of moving on to a feature length film of “Reality Crash.”

Thanks for reading and pass it on.

Reality Crash Speical Effects

I have been in Post Production on my short demo for the movie “Reality Crash” for a few weeks now and it’s been alot of fun and hard work.

I have been editing the Red One’s footage mixed in with the 5D Mark II in Adobe Premier Pro CS5. I like this work flow because I can do my Visual Effects and Motion Graphics right in After Effects, and Dynamic Link them together.  With Dynamic link I don’t need to export my effects each time and then bring them in to Premier. Dynamic link lets you edit in both programs at the same time and live update as you go along. So I can have a piece of footage on the time line in Premier where the clip is going to end up then when I am ready for the effects I can send the clip to After Effects and do my chroma key or matte paintings or any other effects I would add to the shot then click back over to Premier and see the live update.

Stay tune for some BTS photos of my clips from Start(RAW) to Finished shot(Keyed,SFXed,Color Corrected,)
