Ghost VFX

I recently did some VFX for my buddy Ryan Connoly! Just in time for Halloween!

There was only 6 visual effects shots but they had some very tricky challenges! I’ll go into some more details later on so I don’t reveal anything yet. But I will say that it was fun to use Element 3D in a unique way and sneak in some unreleased Action Essentials 4K Elements. Check it out!

With FX Console around the corner, it’s nice to start seeing more of these ongoing projects get finished!  It’s definitely a relief to lift a few projects off my shoulders so we can really speed up our release schedule and yes Intercept too! The traffic is beginning to clear up!

And editing of our new blog show is coming along great and we go back in the kitchen! Here was a fun moment from and old episode:
