First Official Video talking about “5 affordable plugins for After Effects” that can save you tons of time!
It’s pretty nerve racking to push the post button because it’s not at all close to perfect or even the way I envisioned it turning out, but if you never post your first video or start the journey, you can’t work at improving and will never reach your goals.
I know it’s a pretty niche topic, but I would appreciate any critiques, thoughts, and opinions.
There are so many tutorial videos on how to start vlogging that I wanted to do something a little bit different. This is just a little encouragement as I start my adventure into the vlogging world to hopefully get you over that hump and start creating content yourselves. Also, enjoy some B-roll of my wife and my trip to Iceland this past February! Finally getting around to having time to create content.
Come hang out with me at twitch.tv/gearzinmotion every Saturday!
While sitting in the kitchen one day, drinking my morning coffee before work, I glanced over the rough peculiar skin of a cantaloupe sitting on the counter. It looked almost alien in the dim bluish light creeping in the window. The small meal-worm like shapes covering the cantaloupe’s skin started to writhe and wiggle and the crescendo of creaking bones and stretching organic tissue consumed my mind as an almost vertigo effect enhanced the fruit drawing me into it. Then the idea came to me.
“What if those little critters were trying to escape some alien organic prison of a host?”
That was the start. I quickly snapped a photo of the cantaloupe skin and loaded it into my texturing process inverted the skin and gave it some darker tones and a dim blue light and built the animation you see above.
Hope you enjoy it and see a slight glimpse of what terrors I imagined in my own mind that day.
