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.

Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!
Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in! This update is insane! What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but […]
Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]
Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]

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

what's the E.T.A on action movies essentials HD?
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.
