Where did you get that ball to make an orb? I'd like to make something similar and was playing with the idea that I could get some green ball unfortunatelly I did not know it's actual selling until now.

I presume you did not make it by yourself, did you?

Yeah man this is EPIC for us who have learned so much from the people's champion - Andrew :)

Question. The Bazooka gum, did they sponsor the film hence product placement or is that the secret 'element' to your work?
chisomo
3 years ago
i figured it out.(the beard thing) Or atleast i know what i would've done. I noticed that shave was kinda fresh, as opposed to the stubble you have at the beginning of the video. I'm think you shot the bearded part first then shaved and shot the first part. As for the bricks. They were already arranged on the floor when you had the beard and you simply piled them up and rewound the footage. HAHA!(evil laugh) you thought you had me.
chisomo

By the time I was waiting for this! It looks really good. I just have one question concerning the 3D input: I've already tried this technique, but it took me a while to render (2 days for ~30 sec.) and if I decrease the details (polys) the quality becomes kind of cra*py. Just wanted to know the good balance between quantity of polys and rendering time.

I guess that you're pretty busy and you probably won't have reply, so if anyone else can answer me I would be grateful.

btw, I loved the beard! :)

    I think almost everyone of us were surprised with that beard, it looks cool by the way. It added more age to Andrew :)

    Funny, indeed! :D
    But I think, as all of you probably did, that he builded his little set there, with the REAL beard still on his face. Then he shaved, builded the wall of bricks again, and shot the actual first sequence of this part of the video.

    Wow, what a long explanation for such an obvious thing. But somehow, I wanted to state that clear! :D

    Greatings from Germany! :)

    I'm pretty sure they used: Action Beard Essentials. Or maybe Riot Beard.
