This shot was used in our student project, a mock movie trailer for "Zombie Holocaust". I shot the plate, which I used to create a matte painting in Photoshop. I then created separate layers for the foreground, buildings, and background sky, then comped them together with fire, smoke and other elements in Nuke.
This establishing shot was used in the independent film, "Helix". The director wanted a "futuristic, destroyed city" as seen from some distance away. I created the matte painting in Photoshop, created separate cards dividing foreground, buildings and sky elements, then comped them together with smoke elements in Nuke.
The objective of this project was to composite live action with other elements that were shot separately. The ghost was shot against a black screen, and then combined with ink tank elements and other effects.
This was a team project involving the students from Lost Boys Learning. We shot several scenes with the idea of adding effects and then editing them into a movie trailer. We divided the scenes up among the students. I helped shoot several of the scenes, and then composited and added effects to the final shot overlooking the valley (originally a daylight shot). I also handled all of the title graphics and editing duties for the final trailer.
SOFTWARE USED: NukeX, Photoshop and Adobe Premiere
