Recently I was involved in a little low budget affair. I was a thesis project for a design student, kind of a fashion movie for an independent clothing line..
She developed the concept together with the DoP. Then I came on board as an editor and VFX supervisor and added a little sci-fi twist to the concept.
Shot on Red One MX with red primes in 3k 50p for the most part.
Edited in Premiere.
Conformed, pregraded and converted to EXR with Redcine X.
All the effects work and final grading done in After Effects.
CG elements modeled and rendered in 3dsmax.
Here's the final short film:
And here's the VFX making of:
Director: Marissa Maghavipata
Cinematoghraphy: Stefan Preilowski
Music: Georg Rohbeck
Sound Design: Tilman Hahn
Editing & Visual Effects: Benni Diez
It was a great experience, mainly because it was not for commercial purpose and therefore there were no creative restrictions.
When everyone gives their best, although there's no budget and no profit to gain from a project, there's a truly special feeling when all comes together in the end, that you rarely have on regular jobs.
