Whoa...That was actually pretty cool.

A few questions...

What is the name of that song? That soundtrack is almost as good as Horsey Hijack's.. smile

Secondly, What did you use for a bluescreen?

Thirdly, did you slow down parts to make the two people line up?

And a comment...

I'd recommend you do a few less trails at the end. It'll look better.

Not bad, very 16-bit lol I agree with sidewinder less trails would make it more dramatic and less trippy crazy

biggrin Yeah I noticed at the end my trails were too long.. I can fix that.. thanks for the advice. Um.. In regards to how I did it.

well I used a big blue screen 20 feet wide 7 feet high.

Use a DV cam of course.. preferably a XLs or GL1

um.. soem good lighting.

then use Adobe after effects 5+ <-- preferred

Use Ultimatte <-- if you can get your hands on it.

then composite it together.

simple enough..

and for those who said I used Pinnacle for the composite..

actually I used pinnacle for the compression.

*** BLUE screen.

I bought soem cheap fabric from WALMART to make the screen.

make sure it's pure blue and doesn't cast a reflection or wrinkle up too easily.

you can USE green if you'd like.. I prefer green, but the lady at the store said "we ain't got green.. so run along little boy" hehe..


Then most importantly.. make sure you get the right amount of light. try to balance the light out.

Also as tip. try to use the screen outside for a omnilight.. hence the SUN.

How did you stretch out yoyr bluescreen? 20 feet wide is pretty big.

I'm building one right now, with fabric I got from Wal-Mart as well, though mine's only going to be 10 x 8 feet. What I'm doing is building a fram for it from PVC pipe, so that I can collapse the entire thing, roll it up, and take it where I need it. My next step is to make a green screen that'll fit the same frame.

Looks good!

How did you do the "slow-mo/shadow"-effect?

i think it looks really cool -

the full length, will be good.

different camera angles wouldn't go amiss either.

good start

I'm a HUGE Street fighter fan and I know that music is from Super Street Fighter 2 and it's Ken stage. The trail effects are great, just like the Shadow special moves of the game. It is very well done. First rate job there. I think that a lot of people here must not have played Super stree Fighter 2 Turbo if they don't think the trail effects are great. Doin't it less would not achieve the Street Fighter effect. The blood was also a nice touch as there is blood in Street Fighter. I love the trail effect. Wouldn't mind incorporating a similar effect in one of my future movies.
