Utterly brilliant!

Your economical use of actors (or lack of them rather) is intriguing, and some of the crude methods you used to achieve surprisingly complex shots is also really cool! Being pulled through the door on a rope doesn't look particularly nice tho! razz i'd suggest you invest in a climbing harness - which might aid things like that in the future!

Us guys on #fxhome have also noticed a rather bizarre 80s nostalgia thing going on...made bizarre by the fact that you were barely born in the 80s, let alone being of an age capable of remembering such times! razz

Yeah, great stuff guys. Entertaining and hilarious as usual, as well as being genuinely interesting. I could have watched far more of that!

So, when's the next TS masterpiece due? The natives are getting restless.

It was obvious from DXM that you guys worked hard and planned well.

After watching the making of, which was extremely entertaining by the way, I have gained a new level of appreciation for your work.

You guys truly work hard at what you do and you put a lot of passion in it!

Kudos!

I see both of you going places. The best part of the whole thing was seeing how you all appeared to be having fun while doing this. I am very envious.

Good luck in the future biggrin

Man, you guys are awesome! Not only is the camera work great, but the 3D environments, and the camera work in that is incredible. Really really great eye for movie making. This is by far the best thing I've seen on fxhome. That's quite a nice green screen set up you guys have there.

Hahaa.. that was awesome.. now i gotta see the movie.. I think you inspired a lot of us to get some nice green/blue-screens and do special effects smile

One question.. how well does it look in high-resolution best quality? Cause it's kinda hard to tell in a lowres clip..

It would be cool to get the movie in high quality, seems very neat.. smile
The download links are gone on the DMX Movie page though..

Fix it smile

Thanks!

That was the most entertaining documentary ever!..
Since that documentary about Fat English people, that aired here in Sweden a couple of years ago.

It was fast and smooth and well cut. Applause to you guys... And good luck in the future.

Now time for me to idle again...

This is one of the best "making of" videos I have ever seen. Great editing and use of sounds. And it was simple enough that even I could understand it. 5 stars from me.

I was just wondering what programs you used for the 3d work, editing, and green screening.

Anyway, great work. I can't wait to see your next movie.

I just wanna know what software did use when you moved the characters, that you filmed on the green screen, around on?
I mean, when you made them jump further and so on.
or perhaps someone else could answer that question?

They just took their original footage, and added extra green where it was needed. This could be done with photoshop, after effects, and most NLE's. It's easy to paint over footage with more green for keying when it's just empty space, it's going around people and objects that's hard, which is why you use a greenscreen so you don't have to do it manually.

You what?

Once you have an object keyed (ie, the green taken out), you can manipulate it however you want in a decent compositor (such as Chromanator). Don't need to 'add extra green' or anything fiddly. smile

Hmm..now that I think about it, that's right crazy There is an instance where you have to add extra green, I swear to it. I'll remember it someday tard

No no no - - - he's thinking of the part when I jumped from the building to the helo and such - - all I did was keyed the original footage, then moved it up and over a little in AE. That's all.

Ah yes! I knew I wasn't crazy. Sometimes your green screen won't cover the whole area, so you'll have to add extra green. Whoop! wink

Nope. smile

You don't add extra green, you just crop it and make a nice tidy garbage matte.

It's good to see that you guys are taking your resources and attempting to stretch them as far as you can.

I can see that you are getting better and having fun doing it. Keep pushing forward and never stop learning.

I agree that acting is not as easy as it looks. I've acted on a few shoots but I mainly keep myself rooted in the Art Dept.

Great Job I Really Enjoyed It. When you used FCP3 what effect did you use. Did you use Green/bluescreen effect or chroma key. And if you used Green/Bluescreen did you use Green screen or Blue/Green difference. Sorry I know it is a long question, I just really want to know. Thanks

We color corrected the green screen, then applied the green screen key, not the chroma key, and we didn't use the difference key.

Good job there. The movie was by far the biggest tech achievement ive seen in here. This making of had some laugh out loud moments, of which ive only seen about 4 movies with that in it, with FSX's frickin hilariously on spot anime fighting (which you guys should do more of) being a good example. great job

I just wanted to tell you that you did a great job with this movie....
And i wanted to know...

When you show "before and after shots", i realize that the shadow of the actors in the green screen is not the same as it is on the after shot.
Can you explane me how did you do that (to put the shadow on the floor).

I hope you understand what im trying to say because English is'nt my first language,,,, ehe!

Thanks in advance!

Thats strange... I made a 12 X 12 for 20 bucks. I just mozied on over to the fabric store, rangled me up some fabric, paid for it, and walked off into the sunset. biggrin

[edit]
And the gun thing, uh... maybe they asked the administration? I mean, its not like they just walked in and took over the auditorium for a few months. Well... I guess they could. And its not that unlikely wink

Adobe Premiere can do greenscreen and keying. But Chromanator do better greenscreen and keying though. wink

That was a pretty impressive "Making Of..." documentary, which showed off some of the more apparently impressive elements in your film, DXM. Which, I should point out, I haven't seen yet - but based on the quality of this particular doco, I think I will.

What impressed me most of all was the sheer scope of what you have apparently undertook with this project. Rather than allowing pre-conceived limitations to prevent you artificially from achieving a particular vision, what you appear to have done is just say "Sod it", and do it all anyway.

Which is cool - means the final product is probably a lot closer to what was originally envisaged, than if you'd decided to scale it down for fear of not being able to pull certain elements off during post-production. This casual, laid-back style (also apparent in the interviews) bodes well for the film.

Overall, I was most impressed. Am looking forward to watching the film!

A great explanation. All i really want to know is where did you get all the material for making the green screen. Is it simply cheap green fabric or did you shell out 100 bucks for each 10 X 10 section? Also where did you get the blue stunt pad? Currently I have been using an old futon matress and my actors can really tell its an OLD futon matress. Sure it gets the job done but overall its pretty much C level equipment.

Seriosly though. Great work on the movie and the behind the scenes footage. I thought it all turned out great.

LOL, that was hilarious! I loved how you combined humor with an actually good explaination or how it was done. What sort of softwar did you have for this?

Hi, this was facinating!
But how did you remove the rope and the spinning cheer under the DXM dude, or who ever was spinning on it? And wich program did you use?
I really need to know! I need to use a rope to have a guy hang in the air, but ehn the rope is stil in the picture. I don't think it will work so great if i just paint the rope green.. hehe.
And the shadows on the green screen, how did you remove them so good?
I mean, you used a quite strong spotlight against the actors as you recorded them. Can u do all this just with AdobePremiere? If it was this program you used.
Kepp on making films! I'll be looking forward to watch them!

A "making of the movie" rated higher than the actual movie? What a sham.

Whoa that was really good green screening. Where did you shoot it? Was the green screen pretty much just a green sheet? If not, how much did it cost? And, most important, what program did you use for the greenscreening?

Are you sure you watched this? This is the making of video, it tells you literally all of that.
