A visual effect shot from The Human Trace, a feature directed by Jason Satterlund for Big Puddle Films.
For the underwater gunfire shot, I enhanced the original camera plate, which did not include any visible in-camera effects. The addition of metal shrapnel, bubbles, the muzzle flash, and other distortions were created and composited using Adobe After Effects.
The Human Trace was awarded Best Feature Film by the Cedar Rapids Iowa Independent Film Festival in 2008, as well as being accepted into the Memphis Film Festival, also in 2008.
