VFX For Directors
Read the review at Quintessential Studios Blog
Literally years of work went into creating this class. And it shows because their is a massive amount of content for this course. In fact, it’s a 7-DVD course!
The purpose of this course is to learn what is possible and what is not, to give you the ability to predict and make good decisions on the set.
The Visual Effects for Directors course covers digital effects and their principles, so you have a better idea of what can be done.
This is great reference material for Directors or DPs.
It’s not really a how-to, it’s more of a who-does and what-exactly-do-they-do. Knowledge is power and you want the power to know what is required for your film.
Visual Effects for Directors is a complete course that covers: modeling and texturing, modeling, character animation, 3d, compositing, VFX Cinematography, matchmoving, tracking, how to make 3d more real, lighting, interacting with virtual elements, motion capture, object removal and crowd replication. All of this in an easy to understand presentation that puts you in command of the terms and concepts needed to fully understand digital VFX.
There are two dvds that are devoted entirely to “Green Screen Intensive.” This is an area that can cost a production tons in post if not set up properly. With this course, you learn the details of all steps of the green screening process, even down to building and painting a green screen set.
Another benefit is that this course is presented from the viewpoint of how to accomplish all for as little money as possible.
How DO you direct and block on a virtual set? Would you like to know how to get your actor to interact within the set? This course takes you through actual demos and gives you the overall “big picture”.
It is an invaluable resource and will save you untold hours and dollars on all of your productions.
This course is a must for anyone who plans on having any amount of digital effects work on their project.
I’m one who emphasizes understanding the whole process so that you can make smart decisions in your work. This course embodies that idea and uses real-life examples thus making you a “virtual” expert!
I recommend this course for Directors, DPs or for anyone wanting to get into digital VFX.Review By Eric Harnden
