Post-Human sci-fi proof of concept

Postby enganimation on 11/4/2015, 4:39 pm

I’d like to share a project I just completed work on. It is a proof-of-concept sci-fi short from David Simpson based on his best selling “Post-Human” anthology.
I provided all visual effects on the project, making use of several videocopilot products. The Element 3d plugin was used for the holographic video screens as well as the helmet visor. I also used it on the final 2 shots to render out the planets. Also used: Motion Design 2 models, Optical Flares, and a shockwave element. All comps were done in After Effects. Additional 3d work was completed in Blender. Hope you enjoy!

Well done. Certainly some beautiful bedroom scenes with the glass and backgrounds and lighting. Closing titles were killer. This was a ton of work no doubt. A square meal for any optical flares junkie to be sure. ;)

What camera did you shoot on primarily?

Hi Ryan! Thanks for the kudos. The short was filmed entirely on a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. We got featured on CG Society and there is a breakdown of the gear used. http://www.cgsociety.org/news/article/1543/post-human

Nice. That Blackmagic pocket camera is the bomb. Produces such a nice image.

I need to crank out a project like this. Minimal cast but strong visuals and vfx.

Were you the writer/director mentioned or you just did all of the VFX and grade?

Hi Ryan!
David Simpson, the writer of the book series, wrote and directed. I did all visual effects, from roto, tracking, 3D, and comping. Check out my YouTube channel for some other examples of my work.

Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to talk about your project. My email is all over my YouTube channel.
Best,

Ah, I was just curious if you were David Simpson, hehe. I'd be looking to handle VFX myself but would actually benefit a great deal from a writer/director. :) I've not proven very capable in that department yet.

Some great samples on your YouTube channel. Good luck with future projects!
