Ok, I have finally gotten enough web space to put a few of my movie clips up for people to see. These first three are all parts of a 10 minute movie I did, partly for a class project, partly just for fun. It took a lot of time, and just going back and watching it now, I can see a lot of things I could have done better. Anyway, here they are.
All the clips are between 1 and 5 MB.
This is an animated Blender Logo I made.
And this is a quick project I did for beggining college media class.
U of O Final Project
The assignment was to take the video clips, which he gave us, chop them up, and put music behind them. I did a little more.
funny and refreshing
I’d like to have a camera and any talent in animation and compositing
LOL! fun fun fun!
Looks like you found some really good actors. Great sound effects too. I laughed out loud when the guy scratched up the car with his light saber. The first scene was also very well done. Man I love this stuff.
Yeah, that guy scratching the car, that was me .
Good Actors? :o Righhhhht.
Actually, they were pretty good. And they toughed it out, though we actually only did three days of shooting film. Then I did the year’s worth of post production.
Wow :o . I am very impressed. Could you share the material settings you used for the lightsabers? They were (in my opinion) as goos as the ones created by LucasArts!
Some of the sabers I did in Photoshop, some I did in blender. Sorry I didn’t clarify that. But I can post a .blend file with some of my lightsabers in it.
The lasers were all blender, R2 was obviously blender, and about 25% of the light sabers were in blender, the others I did as filmstrips in photoshop.
Awesome, totally cool. The lightsaber and laser guns clip, where just amazing cool. How did you combine the 3D with video? and can you post a lightsaber included video test with .blend file, to take a look how you did this. And what kind of video camera do you use?
It will be a couple of days before I can post up the .blend file. Have to get back to the computer that has it.
As for the video camera. for most of that I used my old VHS monster. I also did some on a Hi8, then converted it to VHS so I could capture it. However, I have just bought a little Mini DV Panasonic (PV-DV-53 to be exact) off ebay. I have only been able to mess with it a little recently, but this summer I’m going to have some fun.
Thanks for your guys’s comments (since they’ve all been good so far ) Keep 'em coming, and maybe some things I could improve on, though all this was done a while ago, except the blender logo and the college project. And the college project I did in one day, before it was due (one looonnngg day, talk about procrastination). But, that should be no excuse.
Pretty good, the only things that bugged me was tha camera shakiness (maybe a tripod would stop things like the scraches on the car moving around) and R2 moves to smoothly, like he’s on a hard floor instead of real ground. The Lightsabers are fantastic!
Great work, the lightsaber duel I thought was particularily cool when the blue one comes out of nowhere at the last minute, and the Snowspeeder shooting birds was hilarious. Amazing job.
Hahaa… Those are awesome… I like the duels and the speeder guy shooting the camera…
Did you use blender for the compsiting too, or a more specialized program?
Woo! That was some awesome stuff!!! Very impressive.
I___ - everything there was done in Blender, composited in Blender, except for some of the light sabers, which I did in Photoshop by rotoscoping them. The lasers, the ships, the shadows the compositing, all done in good ol’ Blender.
10yrs from now we will be seeing these clip on real tv asking, “do you know who these actors are?” Good job. Love the sabers
