Filmin’

Here is a screenshot from a mini-movie we are making for Action Essentials HD. I’ll be going to New York this week for AENY.org but I’ll be working on this project more when I get back. Sam has finally landed a role that will last more than 15 seconds!

I’ll try to post on the blog while I’m gone and let you know how it goes.

Destruction Experiment!
What is this thing! I’ve basically combined a bunch of stuff into one experiment! I might have been inspired by the amazing planet explosions from The Force Awakens but wanted to see if I could get a cool version inside Element 3D. Few Notes on this experiment; I added smoke elements, shockwaves using CC Sphere, and even […]

If Sam can get 16 seconds of fame then anything is possible! The carbon monoxide suicide attempt was his best work though. I could fill the pain through those 100 or so frames...

Notice the shot of same and his chick running is very similarly framed to (or similar focal length and composition) the "inspiring artwork" shot underneath? Quite literally inspiring - was that conscious I wonder?
Nice effort lugging the RED around too :)

Way to go Sam. More screentime and even in full moving action, also rare. You made him suffer in real life this time. But he'll probably die a spectaculair death again. Sorry we love to see you die. :D

and as to the person who asked for a "jumper" tutorial, there's a really decent one on youtube, a user called dillonp23. he has lots of stuff. if there's something you can't find on here, he might have it.

Looks like professional film footage although I know it's a digital camera. Could you please do a behind the scene featuring, Andrew? Talking about the equipment that you used. I know I can never afford it but it's cool to know.

Hey Andrew, can't wait for that promo film, going to be awesome. AEHD is MINE as soon as it's out. I recently made a short action film for my film course at college, and have a craving for more, so I'm probably going to remake that with AEHD effects for even more sexy awesome.

Keep up the awesome work, Kramer.

Peace out from the UK =]

I wonder whether that is an innocent garbage skip/bin, or whether it is housing a giant explosive built by flying raccoons.
