Visual Effects for your next filmproject
From years of research and experimentation I have learned and developed many different Visual Effects techniques. The Visual Effects you can see here are just examples of what is posible. If you have some creative ideas you would like to visualize then feel free to contact me.
Footage for Visual Effects
The Visual Effects can be added to all kind of footage. Maybe you already have the right footage or maybe I have the footage you need in my stock. Otherwise I can make the footage for you – whether you need timelapse, cinematic video or aerial footage.
Flow Motion Zoom
This is a ground-breaking technique developed through several years of intensive research. It combines several different technologies to create a mindblowing experience for the viewer. The technique can be used with both timelapse, slowmotion or traditional video. The technique combines recordings with multiple focus lengths from the same location and advanced techniques on the computer. The method creates a complete seamless transition between two or more focal lengths. Since the zoom is made during editing on the computer, the zoom and the velocity of the movement can be adjusted to the customer’s request during editing. Since timelapse footage usually are in very high resolution the movements are not limited to zoom in / out, but can also be made in both horizontal and vertical direction.
Multiple Location Movement
This unique technique is a variant of the Flow Motion Zoom. It can be used to make some very special and mind blowing filmclips. The floating camera movement, where the audience experiences to fly away from one location and arrive in other locations in the same clip, is not created during the recording, but in a three-dimensional space in the computer. The film shown to the right is made from two stationary filmclips shot on two different locations and time of the day. One before sunset and one after sunset. To get the best result with this technique a good preparation is required, as it is important to be aware of how the recordings should be merged to create the desired effect.
Realistic particle effect can be added to the footage. Gravitation, light intensity and color, wind speed and direction, particle size, look and amount are adjusted to simulate e.g. snow or rain. If the camera has been moved during the recording further action is required. The movement in the footage is first analysed in the computer and then tranfered to a virtual cammera. The virtual cammera is then moved through the particles in the same way as the original camera was moved during the recording. The result is a very realistic scene.
Advanced warping and Morphing
Providing stunning warps and morphs to footage. The warp technique can be used to make transformations using a single photo or filmclip. The morph technique can be used as a transition between two places or two objects. The morph technique works both with two photos and with two filmclips. To get the best result with the morph technique similar features on the two photos or filmclips are required.
Other Visual Effects
Chroma key compositing – This technique is used to remove the background from a subject of a video. This allow a separately filmed background footage or a static image to be inserted into the scene.
Rotoscoping – Isolating complex objects, characters or other part of a scene. Used when chroma key compositing is not possible.
3D Motion Tracking – Adding objects to an environment that look natural and flow with the motion of the video.
Cinemagraph and Looping Video
Super Slow Motion – Shot with a resolution up to 6K.
Long Term Timelapse – One long timelapse or several timelapses shot on different times and merged together to one sequence. Can be used to show your project from start to finish.
All these Visual Effects are just examples of what is posible. If you have some creative ideas you would like to visualize then feel free to contact me.
