This is me shooting down a 747 boing. It took about 6 hours, before the whole thing was finished (Let's just say I was bored) I use a lot of explosions from detonationfilms.com, but you may only see a couple. A lot of people said it was weird, but none has said a word about the effects. I now that it's very unlikly, and may look ridicules, but I still think is freaking awsome. I plan on showing it in to formats. A youtube format (poor quality) And a large one, for those who are willing to wait a lifetime to grasp 25 seconds of teenage effects. Please commend, but don't even think about making me change my style. Sorry for my poor english, I'm danish.

That was good, not great. The shooting was great, it looked very real. The explosion, not so good; and the landing was good too. 4/5

haha, morsom, eneste jeg kunne ha klaga på var greenscreenen og at flyet ble borte da du traff det.

(norsk)

haha funny, only thing to complain about was the greenscreen and that the plane disappeared when you hit it.

The shooting effect was pretty awesome, but i think that if you launch a rocket, your body should move. When the rocket hit the plane it looked wierd, but the last part was great! Keep it up!

Nice attempt, I second what everyone else has said but I'll say a little less feather on the greenscreen part.

How did you get the ground look as if it had actually been hit?

Great job. If you had used a bit less feather on the keying, it would have looked much better, though. Nice use of stock footage (detonationfilms, correct?). Overall, nice job.

You are right, it is freaking awesome! For a test that is. I gave it 3/5 stars. Great job.

As B3N stated, don't feather your actor as much. I take it you keyed that with a DV cam. So you did a good job with that. Have you ever tried keying an HD resolution though? It makes chroma-keying much easier.

Great job for a test. I'd love to see what you can do with an entire sequence, a short film or something. I'll bet it would be fantastic! smile

Thats because this movie was made 2 years ago. It could have been moved to a new URL, edited, or just removed.
