Low-budget indy film needs AfterEffects work...

A link to a BTS clip of the film in question.

I'm in need of some people who have too much time on their hands and a serious AE addiction. ;)

Mostly simple, but tedious work. Motion tracking. Rotoscoping. That sort of thing, primarily. The post production team wants to farm out shots in an attempt to get the film completed so the producers can enter it in festivals. I'm testing the waters for interested parties, so to speak.

Shot on RED last year. Right now I only have access to QuickTime proxy clips, which should be adequate for some of the work. Actual RED footage can be obtained for the more detailed work. No rendering required -- they just want the AE project so they can control renders and tweak as needed. Most shots should be able to use the standard AE effects/tools.

Individuals and/or companies get screen credit. That's the current offer, anyway. Reply to this thread if interested. Thanks for your time!

We would be very eager to undergo this project for our personal experience. We only ask that the work we do in compositing will be used as footage for our demo reel.

Hey, Robert, thanks for the interest. You could absolutely use your work in your own demo reel!

I'm in the process of doing a breakdown of all the VFX shots and what the director wants in each one. I'll have more information available this weekend.

We'd be interested in helping. We'll take the screen credit plus permission to use the shots we work on in our company demo. Can do rotoscoping, motion tracking, rig removal, greenscreen, etc. We use AE CS4.

Send your sample clip link as well; wasn't working.

Please send more info about your specific needs and your location/contact info to:

And thank you for your interest, Mike. Everyone is absolutely welcome to use their work in their own demo reels!

AE CS4 will be perfect. Yeah, sorry about the bad link. My fault for not proofreading that the middle got truncated. It wasn't to a sample clip, though. It was a behind the scenes video about the film. Here are some better links:

The behind the scenes video can be seen at
http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=353762...

And an early trailer can be viewed at
http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=498154...

You can check out the director's company at http://www.myspace.com/skylinepicturesinc

The film I'm trying to coordinate FX for is Double Negative. I'm doing some shots myself, but I don't have the personal time to do all of them. I think what I have now are 2k QuickTime clips. We'll probably mail out USB drives with the files, but I'll see if I can put up one of the smaller ones as a sample. Most of the shots I've seen run about 9-10 seconds. There may be some under 100MB. I'm still in the process of breaking it all down.

I'll have more info by the weekend. Thanks again for your interest (and the contact info!)

Hi Ann,

I'll throw my hat in the ring for credit and reel building. I'm am currently working in After Effects CS3. You can see my reel at the link below. I also do titles if you need those created...

Thanks for your consideration.

Thanks for your interest, Steve. CS3 should be fine. I'll have more info by the weekend, and I'll keep you updated. Thanks for the link to your reel, by the way. I'll check with the director regarding titles, but I think he's got that covered.

Shot 197, 120 MB, 5 seconds -- motion tracking, compositing 3D helicopter in the distance on approach [Hughes AH-6 "Little Bird"]

Shot 211, 178 MB, 7 seconds -- ramp into slow motion when David is grabbed by the uniformed guys

Shot 216, 441 MB, 18 seconds -- motion tracking, muzzle flashes, 3D slide and eject 9mm casing, digital blood for bullet hits [director's notes: "Okay, this one's going to take the longest. First off, we need muzzle flashes, but if possible I'd like to have the top slide of the gun animated to where it looks like it moves back as he fires, loading another round into the chamber. A 3-D shell casing (9mm) flying out of the action after the slide blows back would really add to the realism. Also, when he shoots these guys, could you animate a bullet impact on them with some blood (enough to see it but not a lot) flying out of the wound Frank Miller 300 style?"]

Shot 217, 306 MB, 12.5 seconds -- motion tracking, muzzle flashes, 3D slide on gun, digital blood for bullet hits (more of the same per Shot 216)

Shot 218, 1.73 GB, 1 minute 16 seconds -- motion tracking, animate blood forming under foreground guy's head [director's notes: "On this shot, could you animate a pool of blood forming under Aaron's head as he lies on the ground? Again, quite a bit of blood but not a whole gory mess of it. I'm not Brian De Palma."]

----------------------------------------------------

So far on this thread I've heard from three volunteers. Look over the list, and let me know how many shots you want to tackle or if there's anything in particular you don't want to do. I realize there's some 3D model stuff in there, and I'm mainly looking for basic AE work. If you can do the 3D shots, let me know. I'm planning to post elsewhere about those now that I have more information. Anyway, I'll divide up the shots over the next few days and get some USB drives in the mail sometime this week. If I haven't already, I'll be contacting each of you personally to get a good snail mail address. Thanks again for the interest! I look forward to working with everyone on this project.

Hi, Ann
I'm looking for professional footage to work on to put on my reel.All I need just the permission to put the footage on my reel.
the harder is better so I can challenge my skill.

I'm a grad student and have been work in area about 1-2 years.and have done freelance time to time. I live around LA area.


My demo.



I used CS4, Imagineer Mocha, Monet. Autodesk Combustion. Maya(switching to C4D)
Different kind of shots would be appreciated.

Best of luck
Ronnie

Hi, Ronnie. Welcome to the team! Yes, you can absolutely use the footage you work on for your own demo reel.

You want a challenge? How about shots 216, 217 and 218? 216, especially, is a lot of work. If you can pull it off, it'd definitely be something sweet to use on a reel!

Your vimeo.com link didn't work for me. It's a private video I don't have permission to view.

I'll shoot you an e-mail here in a bit. Thanks for your interest!

Just a little information for those of you working on the monitor screen composites:

S1 uses Stranger_Screen-02.mov
S2 uses Stranger_Screen-03.mov
S3 uses Stranger_Screen-01.mov
S4 uses Stranger_Screen-03.mov
F1 uses Surveillance_Camera_Footage-EmptyAlleyCU.psd for all shots prior to 159
F2 uses Surveillance_Camera_Footage-EmptyAlleyCU.psd for all shots prior to 159
L1 uses Stranger_Screen-02.mov
L2 remains blank for now

F1 and F2 use surveillance camera footage video after shot 159, specific time code to be determined soon. If you have one of those shots, just comp in the footage and we'll figure out what scene to slide it around to when I get the info from the director.

Thanks again to all who signed on for their volunteer efforts!

Hey Ann,

I did like to work on it.
I could take care of the motion tracking and other stuff.
Hope to hear from you.
