How do i make the end of a hallway black?
on May 16, 2014 at 11:49:02 pm

Hey guys, i'm making a horror film for a school project, and i have a shot where the camera slowly moves down a hallway. Does anybody know an effective way to make a shadowy black appear at the end of the hall?

Thanks a lot, Rabbo.

hi - one method could be ...

1) ---- duplicate footage of hall

2 ) ---- colour correct this copy to get the look you want

3 ) ----- on colour corrected duplicate draw a mask / use a circle mask - around area you want darkened and experiment with feathered edging till it blends in with original
- also shape of mask if you need to ----- till you have it.


---- would try a circle first as its an easy one but my guess is rhat if you use the pen tool you might get a more convincing result - depends on whats in the shot.

-- suggest also experiment a bit -- might be worth adding a second copy and darkening further the very centre / or the corners --

--- maybe add some grunge texture ( in perspective and apply to walls ) ---- blood on the floor ( ! ? ) -- depends......
