While production on the new FXhome sci-fi tutorial DVD and its accompanying short film Assault on Igneos continues, we thought we'd take a look back at 2008's short films, Beach Landing and Superheroes.

Two behind-the-scenes videos are now online that show some before & after visual effects comparisons. Check them out:

This is pretty cool stuff guys. It reminds me of why I started hanging around fxhome 3 years back.

But I must say that you guys couldn't possibly have used a worse grading for the Beach Video. All the times I watched it made me cringe of how fake it looked. I thought is was just poor compositing, but to my surprise, the ungraded version actually looks real. So the grading kinda killed it lol
