The Next Video Project

October 25th, 2008 01:25 am | by Ed |

Having gotten my latest video project done, I'm already thinking about what to do next.

It's not just a question of the subject or story either. While coming up with either can be a problem at times, the good idea eventually comes along. The thing I'm thinking of now is that I want to learn more video effects stuff.

Doing the transporter effect in the last one was great and with getting that to actually work I've got at least a beginners understanding of Chroma-keying. Shoot actors in front of nutral colored background (usually green or blue) and then in the editor replace the background with whatever images or video you want. A great way to look like you're a real globe trotter without having to deal with the travel insurance that goes with doing it for real.

I suppose a good next step would be some kind of energy ball or lightning effect. Perhaps doing a light sabre. I guess I'm going to have to come up with time (yeah, right. That's gonna happen.) to do some reading in video related forums.
