Red Giant “Game of Thrones VFX Pt. 3: Zombie Horde” out now; create a zombie horde battle scene worthy of an Emmy® with Hashi in Cheap Tricks episode 10.
Portland, OR – October 1, 2019 – Red Giant, creator of filmmaking, visual effects and motion graphics tools, has just released the third installment of its Cheap Tricks special edition Game of Thrones tutorial series. In this latest episode, Action Movie Dad, Hashi, demonstrates how to recreate intense battle scenes between the living and the dead from the Emmy®-award winning television show, including how to animate the zombie horde that would make up the dreaded army of the dead. As part of today’s tutorial release, Red Giant will also be giving away free green screen footage and launching a contest to give folks a chance to win all tools from the Red Giant product family.
“The whole point is to show you that attacking a fully CG character doesn’t have to be a big deal, even when it’s got some cool character effects and things associated with it,” Hashi says in the tutorial.
