Fight Scene Test - First Fight
Here is a rough VFX test we did using video shot on location. Mainly trying out sky replacement (very rushed- not representative of the final renders), color schemes and shot choices.

These points fade, into fingers, rising over the planet which morphs into the curve of a pregnant belly. The fingers move up and over the top of the belly’s curve, coming to rest across the top.

This piece is important to me because I think it is probably the best example of the type...

A few more tests. The first showing the topographical readout on Captain Voight-Kampfs tablet. The second, a few variations of the cockpit readout after the crash. Alpha stage. Lots more work needed. Want to eventually animated every doodad in the interface.
Hologram/Tablet FX test. AE and photoshop. Note on the clip with the background plate that i’ve tried to approximate a reflection… That’s going to be a nightmare with the real footage…
How To Place Tracking Markers →
This video is probably going to be a lifesaver in terms of the shoots on location where we need to track each shot to be able to place 2d/3d objects in the landscape.
