this is a video clip from
80th Birthday party I recorded.
My father's Band was playing and
the Minister of her church wrote a
quick song about My Grandmother.
it evolved into a spontaneous
jam session with everyone at the
party singing back up.
it was as surprising as it was
unique and really shows the Love
my grandmother's community
has for her. I wanted to share this
so I'm posting it on the web. enjoy.
Not really a short film... it was a test but I liked it, so I spent a few more hours (ok, a lot of hours!) to finish it...
It was made by editing in Final Cut pro a series of still photos of the actor I took with a Nikon D70s.
I used a lot of hand made paint textures, drops, ink brushed lines, etc. I also used some old stone wall textures.
I composed every shot in Photoshop splitting footage in layers, drawing and pasting things like a kind of "collage" or patchwork.
Later, I made a 3d composition in After Effects.
Every layer was internally animated independently and later composed in a 3d environment in which I put lights and DoF (depth of field).
The music and sound effects were made with Soundtrack and Apple loops.
By the way, thanks for the comments!
This site is really well done! Congrats to the staff!!!!!
