This is a showreel from a VFX compositor who creates all his effects using After Effects. The effects he creates vary in quality, with some looking a bit rough around the edges, but what I like is that he also produces After Effects tutorials to show how he creates some of these VFX. This is a great way to learn a few tricks and techniques for using After Effects, and some of them, including the Giant Man and maybe some of the teleportation tutorials, will be useful in relation to my own project.
As I mentioned in a previous post, TheMrMenagerie produced a tutorial for the Giant Man effect, ‘Adobe After Effects Tutorial-Giant Effect’:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HOeHaCF07M. I will use a similar technique for my ‘giant hand’ shot, but using a green screen.
