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.
