I've decided to start a thread where I post projects that I am working on, and talk about my process. I'll also be posting iterations of shots as I work on my VFX skills. Critiques, comments and suggestions are welcome!
For my first post, here is a short that I recently finished. It is a lego/stop motion version of the Star Wars trailer.
This was one of the most time consuming projects I have done. To start, I shot the stop motion, which didn't take too long, since many of the shots are completely CGI. Once that was done, I started to edit. Sound design and music were already done, because I would use the original audio of the trailer. The only thing I had to worry about was VFX. A lot of them were just compositing images, or stock footage with 3d camera moves and camera shake. Some of the more complex ones involved 3d models, which I did in Autodesk Maya.
You can also follow me on youtube, where I'll post videos on a (roughly) weekly basis.
Let me know what you guys think!
