IMPORTANT RSVP $375 + GST: HERE
The AIT Film Special Effects workshop lets you in on the secret of how big Hollywood movies are made – from the birth of the concept to the big screen. In this three-day workshop, you will learn the techniques of the experts. You’ll learn how to create your own Michael Bay explosion scenes, how to composite blood splatter into fight scenes and if you’re lucky, there might be time for you to take flight like your favorite DC or Marvel super heroes. This workshop will teach you the skills that you need to write, direct and produce professional level film effects and export the finished film sequence for viewing online or in HD.
Day 1 - Plan select and illustrate film sequence content.
Special effects require careful planning and placement of actors, objects and backgrounds to ensure good results. On the first day you will select from a range of backgrounds, decide what objects you wish to insert, flames, explosions, blood, weapons, etc.
Day 2 - Film Green Screen performances.
On the second day we will rehearse and film the green screen sequences taking care to ensure that placement and movement of actors will interact with the planned placement of special effects objects.
Day 3 - Apply transparency keying to images
The green screen images can then be made transparent by applying filters to remove the green from the image. Once this is done you will see the actor, the background and the objects all in to one screen.
Once you have made final adjustments we will export a movie of the sequence for you to take home and upload ontoFacebook or YouTube. You will have created your own special effects sequence.
