Rarrrggghhhh!!! July 23, 2008Posted by William J. Meyer in Jack's Post-Production.
Hi! Last night I had fun manipulating those hygiene-impaired chompers that you last saw in the Jack teaser trailer.
This particular shot involved precomping the original footage in After Effects, crushing the blacks, masking the saliva/goo out of the crush, duping, blurring, glow(ing) the precomp, and adding a slight green tint.
I’ll go back and address the color-correction when the scene is complete so I can more easily judge the VFX, live-action, and composited shots as a unified entity; maybe you fancy-pants auteurs would call that mise en scéne, I dunno. I can’t even get the accent to go the right way over the “e.” But I do know this guy-thing-unbelievable-horror is damn hungry!
