Just so you know…

I’m currently working on some VFX for an upcoming feature film and we are finishing up this month on about 50 shots.

I’m still very anxious to show you what we have been working on at Video Copilot and I think this will represent a solid direction and a new level of content on the site. Needless to say it has been busy as of late, from finishing the FX on my “Magic Orb” project to getting involved on a feature film that actually requires the FX to actually be good. Obviously it has been really fun and sometimes really late but I’ve been exploring some fantastic new VFX and workflows so I can’t wait to share them with you.

Of course behind the scenes, Video Copilot is moving forward on 3 new plug-ins, one of which is being shaped around the needs of real film work and experiences. I believe they represent the next-generation of tools that will open up some amazing possibilities…

Believe me, I don’t mean to tease but I just want everyone to know what we are up to and what we are working on!

Until soon, All the best!!
