POST-PRODUCTION

There’s nothing more frustrating than taking too long on a video project. In the video world, time is money and every extra second wasted on a video project is money lost. In the following post we’re going to take a look at a few different ways to speed up your editing speeds.

It’s the Holiday season once again! The wonderful time of year when many of us get to experience all the Christmas movies that we have collected over the years or the ones running on repeat on TV. When it comes to the warm and fuzzy Christmas movies, good effects are not normally the first thing you think of.

When it comes to creating an epic trailer, the importance of the titles can’t be overstated. The title card in your trailer leaves the audience with a taste of what the artistic vision of the entire film might be. While it may seem like an easy task there’s a reason why professional graphics
companies spend weeks crafting the perfect titles for a film.

Making digital art of any kind can be difficult. Learning a specific software in order to make that art creates an additional challenge.

I want to do a throwback type deal here and remind y'all just how far we have come in the VFX world. We are going to take a look at a few moments in history where artists were bringing visual effects to life, before they even knew what "visual effects" were.

The two-time Oscar winning VFX Supervisor, Bill Westenhofer, came to the Warcraft team early on in production stages and knew that body motion capture was going to be a key element for the orcs to seem as if they were a real live race of beings.
