Update For April 2018 - PICTURE LOCK!

Hey everyone,
Wow, time has just been flying by. Things are moving so fast that I did an update video a couple of weeks ago and then forgot to post it, so here it is now.


That's right. We have picture lock. There will be no more chages to the edit. We are now working exclusivly on the audio tracks, color correction, and VFX. It's tedious work but I'm getting some help from a friend who is just finishing up some VFX work on the new Marry Poppins movie.






Anyway, if you're not affraid of some behind the scenes looks at The Quantum Terror before you see the movie, I've posted some live streams of my VFX work in progress, below.





If you want to see more as they come out or you missed any and want to catch up, you can find everything at my YouTube channel. If you want to keep up with everything I'm doing, please spend some time with me over at my Christopher Moonlight Productions blog or my temp website.

Thanks, everyone. We're going to have fun and accomplish some lifelong goals here. Now, let's get to work.

Christopher Moonlight Film School Is In Session

Well, it's been a busy few weeks for me as I work on the VFX for my first feature film The Quantum Terror. As promised I've been live streaming a lot of my work, which you can watch in the following videos. Here's what's been going on, so far.



First off, we have the beginnings of using green screen, UltraKey, and Adobe After Effects to place actor Matt Blackwell into a practical effects, miniature environment, involving a creature puppet.


That one is "to be continued" as I still have to record some video assets that will factor into that scene. However, I was able to take water assets that I took video of at a park and incorporate them into a miniature tunnel scene, to make it appear to be flooded.


I also used UltraKey and After effects to incorporate a "Stranger Things" like alien creature (which I designed and shot way before the premiere of the show) into a scene with actresses Kristin Cochell and Paula Solinger.


At this point, I was feeling rejuvenated. It's been a while since I've been able to play around with VFX in the ways I had grown accustomed to in the past, so I decided to revisit another project that (for reasons I won't' get into here) I had to leave unfinished, for now. It's called Girl In The Window and this next video is a run-through of the some of the work I created for the film. I plan to revisit it after The Quantum Terror is done.



However, my main focus will be The Quantum Terror until it's done. In these next two videos, I show how I use green screen shots where the set alone won't do and needs to be extended.





Thanks, everyone. We're going to have fun and accomplish some lifelong goals here. Now, let's get to work.

Editing Twitch Livestream #1

It begins. Actually, it began a long time ago but this is the beginning of you being able to watch me work on it. I've still got some editing to wrap up before moving onto the major aspects of visual effects but let's get started, so let's do this. Oh, but there may be mild spoilers so watch at your own risk. It's your choice whether you want to be part of the process or not.

Hi Gang,
I'm sick as a dog and my computer is caput but you can't keep a good Lovecraftian horror down. Here's a quick video update so you can see what I mean.
