Our new project wouldn’t be complete without Sam Loya discovering something magical so we found a way to get him in. I know there has been a lot of mystery on the blog recently and I apologize, it is not meant to be as suspenseful, it is just taking longer than expected 🙂

I really want to show you everything we are working on but I don’t want to ruin the surprise by releasing too much so I appreciate your patience. I will try to post small things as we go and we are very close to finishing!

Atmospheric Re-Entry!
Here is a preview of an animation i’m working on. Playing around with Element 3D and Saber to create the fiery streaks! This past week has been super productive, finishing VFX for Intercept, doing daily renders and preparing for another DMALA meeting in Los Angeles on October 18th. Going to be a blast!

Circuit City
Making circuits! After trying to create something large, I thought I should try to make something small! I started by taking a circuitry texture and placing it on a plane in Element 3D. I used the texture in the Glossiness channel and the reflection channel to give the pathways a metalic look. Next I built the […]
Cloud City
Continuing the Element 3D fun! This started as a desert scene and soon turned into a cloud city! Typical. Part of the fun of these render projects is just creating random stuff and designing without a specific goal. It’s actually been really challenging and exciting to try various techniques. In this scene, I used an aerial […]
My 10 Cloverfield Lane Contribution
Earlier this year I had the chance to work on 10 Cloverfield lane, on this horrifying matte painting and composite. Many image-searches for road kill have scarred my mind! As always it was a pleasure to work with Dan Trachtenberg.     My work on 10 Cloverfield Lane! #nightmares #mattepainting A photo posted by Video Copilot (@andrewkramer) […]

Things have been busy lately as we have been working on some vfx for a short Video Copilot project that we will be covering extensively on the blog. It is an unusual project but it has been a great opportunity to work on because some unexpected challenges compared to our normal work.

I won’t ruin the surprise yet but we should be close to finishing in about a week.

Medieval Shoot

I’ve been working on a new project this past week involving some magic and maybe some mystery. It seems the closer I get to finishing one thing, the more needs to be done in post. I can’t tell you what this actress is looking at but it is part of a promo I will share online when it is complete. There will likely be some great behind the scenes action and a few visual effects tips to share.

Btw, we shot with a new Sony F3 and a couple Optimo cinema lenses… more to follow!
