This is not a test!
This was a short but REAL gig I did for a client. The client happens to be my bad-ass buddy Ian McFarland. He's a documentary / commercial / music-video director based out of Boston who is also a die-hard metal fan like myself. He came to me recently with a small gig that needed to be done, like, yesterday.
When time is short and you have to get a good result to your client with no room for error, there are some tricks to make your life easier.
In this video I'll try to take you through the process of working on something like this, showing you a few workflows in After Effects / Mocha, and also talking about some clever ways to get to "approved" a heck of a lot faster.
This work was done for the Kickstarter campaign for The Godfathers of Hardcore, a SWEET looking documentary about the legendary hardcore band, Agnostic Front. The campaign ends May 17, 2015 so go back that thang!
Unfortunately I can't provide the project assets for this piece since I used ink stock footage that is no longer free. If you'd like to get the same clips I used, here are the places to go!
Insanely Affordable stock FX footage, including the ink blots I used in this video.
A killer company that sells real film footage for adding grain, light leaks, film burns, and more.
McFarland & Pecci
Two amazing dudes who make some of the coolest docs, music videos and spots around.
