Title: FXPHD – FLM205 Flame on Red Dwarf
We’ve finally been able to tap fxguide co-founder Jeff Heusser to teach a course at fxphd, and he’ll be showing work he did for the Red Dwarf: Back to Earth production. A long time flame user, Jeff has worked on commercials, feature films, TV shows, music videos and network promos in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and San Francisco. He will share his experience working in small shops to large as well as the freelance world.
Jeff will start out with an overview of setting up a project on flame, gleaned from his variety of experiences over the years. Next, he’ll start tackling shots and share tricks for dealing with various compositing problems which come up on the jobs we do every day. Probably the most common shot of all in visual effects is the monitor replacement shot and this show is no different. With shots ranging from a fairly basic 8 monitor replacement (complete with depth of field and keying issues) and switches gears to the mother of all monitor shots — 20+ televisions at all angles and depths, a camera move, varying levels of bluescreen, depth issues, and more. Next, several shots from another sequence will be tackled as we work through this job including topics such as green screen with RED footage, compositing tricks, a look at the next release of flame, and more.
The course members will receive full quality footage to follow along and complete the composites themselves.
