Well… I pestered him long enough, and Plot Device Director Seth Worley finally agreed to put together an awesome series of tutorials on visual effects for filmmakers. Part of the time he’ll focus on the work he did in Plot Device, and part of the time on entirely new stuff. But 800,000 views later and a barrage of emails, and we couldn’t ignore the requests to learn more about how Seth creates great VFX on a very limited budget. In addition, Seth is also creating a bunch of presets for Red Giant People, based on projects he’s currently working on.
We’re starting off the series with a walk through of creating one of my favorite effects from Plot Device: The Flip! If you wondered how Seth got Ben to flip through the air after being shot by the alien/gas mask guy, here’s your chance to learn how. Hint: it involves a trampoline, a green screen, and possibly some brotherly love/pain.
Here’s the Episode description:
In this Episode of Red Giant TV, Seth Worley walks you through the flip effect seen in Plot Device, where Ben is shot and spins through the air. You’ll learn about, keying, rotoscoping, compositing, color correction, visual effects and trampolines.
