Special Forces

I don’t know what this is but I’m posting it. All I know is that it probably isn’t going to end well for Sam.

Hey Andrew,

the M4A1 looks very realistic..

Is it a air soft weapon or a replica?
chuckarama
July 1st, 2010 @ 1:54 pm
Uh-oh! Looks like Sam didn't take kindly to getting his mug jammed through a window, and now he's a man on mission. A mission of payback! YIPEE-KAYAH Mother-trucker!

I predict Sam 1, badguys 0.

Chances are, the gun isn't loaded xD
July 1st, 2010 @ 1:58 pm
That special forces will need some special keying program to fine tune the key.
July 1st, 2010 @ 1:59 pm
The secret is that sam is CGI, everything else is REAL!!!
July 1st, 2010 @ 1:59 pm
Very real that looks, but he must to has his face inked,and i hope Sam be the main in this whatever be...

ooh man! whatever this is i cant wait!!!

I have a feeling that the forum crowd might have fun with a little manipulation of this one.
July 1st, 2010 @ 2:09 pm
is this a film you made in san francisco??
Gerard Timmers
July 1st, 2010 @ 2:10 pm
Looking good. I only notice that his side arm is a Glock and as far as I can see it is inside the wrong holster. :-)

You should post a video of him with a little green screen and see what comes back from it. Kinda like a green screen challenge. Just sayin....

i did some changes to it . here http://www.hpics.li/f54fb

July 1st, 2010 @ 2:20 pm
Good work, kalitchou. Like the changes and your keying.
July 1st, 2010 @ 2:28 pm
because of the green and blue tints in the clothing, would you ever want to shoot on a red screen in this case?
Aegis Kleais
July 1st, 2010 @ 2:34 pm
Look, it's "Sam" Fisher. :)

And hey, props to ya; you're practicing fingering (the muscular memory act of placing your finger alongside the side of the gun, with your finger off the trigger, in an attempt to prevent accidental discharges)

Sam's a well-trained fightin' machine.
Alex Williams
July 1st, 2010 @ 2:36 pm
Don't use a red screen. Red is way too present in skin tone and your subjects will end up looking like swiss cheese!
July 1st, 2010 @ 2:53 pm
New short movie?
July 1st, 2010 @ 1:54 pm
Awesome! Sam looks really geared up. Lol
July 1st, 2010 @ 2:56 pm
YES! Go Sam! I want to see Sam win for once. :)
July 1st, 2010 @ 3:02 pm
@Ryan Haury Though I'm sure Andrew would be able to key it perfectly on a red background, but the rest of us would most likely end up removing some of sam's skin and make him look kinda green-ish. The skin color contains a lot of red. Green is oposite of red, so that's why green screens are often used. However for this particular shot, I think a blue one would be the easiest.

July 1st, 2010 @ 3:06 pm
Sam puts the Special back in the Special Forces
July 1st, 2010 @ 3:17 pm
Is that what Sam wears before he gets slaughtered in Modern Warfare 2?

July 1st, 2010 @ 3:47 pm
Ejection port cover is open - but that can always be fixed in post.
Gforce
July 1st, 2010 @ 3:53 pm
I think its obvious. For crying out people he has a gun
and badass gear which could only mean one thing. He's gonna kick the hell out of some Independance Day alien
butt. Its either that or Sam is signing up to be an insurgent. He he

LMAO! What's Andrew doing to Sam now!! lol. Can't wait!!

July 1st, 2010 @ 4:22 pm
theres so much sadness in those eyes..
Magic
July 1st, 2010 @ 4:27 pm
yeah I see sadness too in the eyes, probably because he dont know what AK is upto next lol
Larry
July 1st, 2010 @ 4:34 pm
Sam don't go against Video Copilot you will be destroyed!
Benjamin
July 1st, 2010 @ 4:38 pm
hahahaha pretty nice :D seems like a lot of fun and i'm looking forwart for a gread new video :D poor sam :D
Will
July 1st, 2010 @ 4:50 pm
It's funny that andrew offer alot of great tutorials and products, but he doesn't offer any greenscreen footage, i for one would love to buy some hd footage and use it to create a short or something, i wouldnt want it pre-keyed because i think the process of keying it out yourself is needed.

I hope andrew reads this and has a think about the idea :)
July 1st, 2010 @ 5:00 pm
Wow... Umm... uhh... yeeeaaaahhhhh...
JP
July 1st, 2010 @ 5:16 pm
Go get 'em Sam…
NN01
July 1st, 2010 @ 6:01 pm
I sure hope Sam's gonna do a war.
I think this is what this is 'cause I remember a machine gun hi test not too long ago.
OlympiaLogger
July 1st, 2010 @ 6:07 pm
Kewl! Actually he needs more dirt and grime and his fingernails are too clean and not broken.

We're a marketing organization with very good connections. I think it's high time to get Sammy an agent. Call or post me. Seriously!
July 1st, 2010 @ 6:18 pm

July 1st, 2010 @ 10:47 pm
Haha, I can't wait to see what this turns into. That UCP pattern looks really messed up though; Did you do something to make it darker, or is it just the lighting?

July 2nd, 2010 @ 11:39 am
I wonder if Sam ever had a cameo in a movie how many people in the theater would scream, "Hey, that's that guy! Awesome!"

Needs more black paint to camouflage the face.

Also, i think we need more Action Essentials to do the tutorials featuring our Special-Forces Hero.

Hi, you should close the cover on m4a1, that shows AEG stuff inside =)

July 6th, 2010 @ 5:19 am
Of late Andrew has taken to experimenting a lot. Hope to see new ideas take wings. Iam sure this is going to be some mix of muzzle fire from Action essentials collection and some new technique about bullets.
