Alright so I finally got everything I need to start making my action packed sci-fi movie. Got the better software, etc...

In this short clip, I had a lot of fun...


1. I had to mask out the edges of my green screen.
2. Remove the green screen, so that the cool background shows.
3. Add a blur to the background, creating "depth".
4. Color correct myself and the background so that they match. (still getting the hang of this)
5. Add a pan movement, to keep the scene from being boring.
6. Add in sound effects of me using a sci-fi keyboard.
7. Add music, but edit it so that way it echos slightly to match the size of the room I'm in.
8. Edit the music so that it sounds as if it's being played from a radio.
9. Add focus to dim the edges of the screen, adding more depth.

10. Realize the background isn't very good, but i'm too lazy to switch it up.

When I finally have a script ready (with your help), I can actually work harder at this. I could have fiddled with the adjustments more to make it more real, but I'm ignorant and lazy.

Hopefully we can get some grass monsters, and cool gun props that shoot out grass killing chems.

This isn't really what I'm aiming for, but I thought I'd show you the capabilities of this software lol...

The zombie has some pixel errors because I enlarged him wayyyy too much, but once again, just a test for now!

(removed keyboard sfx)

What software is this?

I had to use Cyberlink PowerDirector 10 for cropping my green screen out, and adding sound... Not too familiar with the newer program yet.

Everything else was done with HitFilm 2 Express, $150..

I got HitFilm because it does a MUCH better job when it comes to working with a green screen.

**- I don't even have proper lighting yet, but the results blow me away!

I wish we could all come up with a story, and have you all in this!

I think if you picked up some green poster board at the dollar store, you could make a clip and send it over to me.

One light should be lighting the screen.
One light should be lighting the back of your body.
One light should be lighting your face.

Also, be as far away as possible from the green. Shadows are a no-no!!!

I do everything with only 3 crappy lights.

I recorded myself showing you what kind of things I do to edit.

Can you make yourself spin around and then blast the zombie and have this flash of light created from the gun?

When your film is complete (after post-production), you need to see about submitting it to The Sundance Film Festival and other independent film events.:D

you should make a movie about a mutant giant chinch bug infestation that is devouring a small town because all the landscapers used a genetically modified fertilizer.
that scene should be you in the lab trying to put together the high tech pesticide that is gonna save what is left of this small town before all the people are eaten by the monster chinch bugs.

after finding a good mix of pesticides that kill the mutant chinch bugs you hurry to get out and save the town only to find your truck surrounded by the giant chinch bugs and left you no choice but to hop on your toro time cutter to race off and save the day.

then the movie could end with you and the last remaining hot chick in town that did not get eaten by the chinch bugs driving off into the sunset on your toro time cutter.
