Special Effect in After Effects

Hello! I have been grazing this forum for months now just soaking up great gems of knowledge!

It was finally time to join and get some answers!

I was wondering if anyone knew how to do this affect in AE?






The flickering lights, colors, and random effects that happen throughout the video.

I have worked a bit with green screen and assumed it was a layer of just another video with those effects
Is a camera actually rotating or do you think that it is just a video effect to make him look like he is spinning. If so how can I do that?? Thank you ahead of time!
Also I have been looking into green screen backgrounds which I assume this video is how do I get that depth of field look like this video?
Thank you again!
-Evan

He's looks to be sitting/standing on a turntable. It's basically what it sounds like, a device used to spin objects(or in this case), a person around in a circle. At 40 seconds, they add to the look by having him sitting on the turntable and tracking the camera past him---looked cool.

The flickering lights colors can be accomplished in a few ways, but mostly it's adding a video/solid layer over your video and playing with transfer modes and opacity. Here's a tutorial on film damage that uses the same techniques.

Here's a link to a page that has links to tons of film damage/light leak pages you can overlay on to your videos: 121 Free Film Grain & Light Leaks for

And finally if you are just starting in AE, here's a great starting place: Getting started with After Effects (CS4, CS5, CS5.5, CS6, & CC)
