Directed by: Parker W Young
Over 2,700 images were shot over the course of 3 weeks (some were also reused) and compiled in Final Cut Pro 7 and After Effects CS4. In less than 2 weeks the images went from memory cards to final video output, making it the fastest edit I’ve ever done.
In that two weeks, all the compositing with holographic characters, additional motion graphics, camera movements, audio adjustments, color correction, titles and other effects were added to the original image line.
Everything you see on the screen was shot through a Canon D50, including the holograms.Elements were not added to the original images, only rearranged. Many-a-night’s sleep was lost during the process, but it was ultimately worth it. 🙂
