Here it is! Finally the completed and final video of the experiment I started a over a week ago.

I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do in this one when I threw it in After Effects. With the "free time" that I had, I would sit down and play and experiment a little with this video.

First thing I needed to do was stabilize the footage. Out of the best takes I got, I settled on one that I found sexy. But it wasn't sexy enough because of the camera shake from the slider that I had. So within AE I had to use the camera stabilizer which helped the situation. But It didn't completely get rid of the wobble, however I did like the results as I liked a bit of camera shake.

From there I had to composite out logos from the camera rig. This was done using a combination of Photoshop and tracking inside AE.

And after that the rest was done using various tools and magic within AE. As I figured out what I wanted I used a combination of Trapcode particular to simulate the photons going into the camera lens and Trapcode shine for the glow and blowout. The splatter you see on the lens was done using stock ink splatter that I found on the web and mask.

All in all I think it came out pretty good for what it is, which was just a vague idea floating in my head.

Things tend to happen when you just let your imagination run wild.

Yongnuo YN-600 Lit Scene

This is a scene from a web series that my roommate is developing. It was lit entirely by a single Yongnuo YN-600 that was bouncing of the ceiling.


I didn't create this one, but I found it very interesting. It's a simple video of man working on his craft. Whatever that may be.

Marijuana Cause Brain Damage? The Canadian Government Thinks So

Recently Health Canada started airing these ads on claiming so called damaging effects of Marijuana on the mind of teenagers. Even the minister of propaganda in North Korea would blush after watching this.

Macro Video - Canon 100MM f2.8L Macro Lens

Spent an evening at the VanDusen Botanical Garden here in Vancouver with my friend's macro lens(Canon 100MM f2.8L Macro Lens) & camera(Canon 60D). This was my fist time using a macro lens; so this was also a learning experience for me. I really did enjoyed it and I realized with a lens like this it just opens up another world that you just wouldn't really recognize nor see with the naked eye. No insects were harmed during the making of this video
