    Snowman. Breathing fire. And melting a little. Caution: this all comes of listening to too much Glen Keane. Listening to him doesn't make illustrators magically know how to animate, but it does make them want to. Originally inspired by @rocketworm's tweet about "fire breathing snowmen." (https://twitter.com/RocketWorm/status/545963875368468480) I just thought it sounded like so much fun. However, as I started sketching, I listened to the Rotoscoper's wonderful interview of Mr. Keane. (http://www.rotoscopers.com/2014/12/13/animation-addicts-episode-82-interview-with-glen-keane-duet/) So the 1 illustration of a fire-breathing snowman morphed into 15 illustrations. Mr. Keane can have that effect on folks. He makes you want to make great art! And lots of it! Each one slightly different from each other.... Also while sketching this, I listened to Keane's amazing interview by thr Bancroft Bros. (http://taughtbyapro.com/podcast-8-the-glen-keane-interview/) It put the fire in this little work of art. Glen makes such wonderful art, imparts art knowledge so candidly, and stays so humble and personable. Inspiring on so many levels.

        • Incendia - Sony FS700 slowmo test with firebreathing

          With its organic nature, fire is a beautiful element to capture in slow motion. I performed this test as an experiment with the overcranking mode on the Sony FS700 camera (240fps/480fps) in order to directly compare the results to 'Incendium' where the slow motion was interpolated using Twixtor and shot on Canon 7D (60fps): https://vimeo.com/21919856 Special thanks to Elliott Montello for his fire-breathing skills, 'Blear Moon' for his awesome soundtrack and Alex Thornton for assisting on the night. http://www.dannycooke.co.uk

                  • Twixtor Tutorial Part One : Incendium


                    from Elliott.G.Montello / Added

                    After much demand, I have released a tutorial explaining how I used RE:Vision Effects Twixtor to create the interpolated slow motion in the short film 'Incendium' by Danny Cooke and myself. http://www.vimeo.com/21919856 From the start, 'Twixtorizing' fire and water is an extremely hard thing to interpolate due to their unpredictability. However, I shall explain the main principles of Twixtor which you can apply to any video, and how to tidy up any unwanted warping. Before you start, for best results use a shutter speed that will match your final framerate to avoid blurry slow motion. Also, use the highest framerate setting on your camera possible e.g. 60p, 60i or if you are using a 5D Mark II use 30p; The more frames Twixtor gets to play with, the better! Hope you enjoy :) Part Two : http://vimeo.com/32155510 My favorite comment to date... Ben Gordon : Very helpful tutorial..better than the official one. Cheers.
