I was wondering if anyone knew where to find a backround like the one in the matrix where neo is flying and all of the debri, cars, etc. is being destroyed behind him. It doesn't have to be that shot in particular just something that will look like someones flying (like Neo was or a superman style facing the camera)

That was a great backdrop, but it was very small dimensions, and very short clip. Whould be awsome with a bigger longer "proto movie" of this.

Sorry, that was all I had for flying through clouds...

by the way... What's a "proto movie"?

I could make something similar, but it wouldn't really look like clouds I don't think... I'll try...
