CQC Special Effects

26 06 2009

While doing a video documentary for my Journalism course, I decided to research a bit about some special effects used on a famous brazillian show (though there’s also a version in Argentina and Portugal) called CQC (Custe o Que Custar) which mixes comedy with journalism and a specially acid criticism to brazilian politics/culture.
Their effects looks kinda simple, but very funny:

Well, turns out it’s not that simple, so I ended up not learning how to do it… they hire an speciallized studio to do it.
I’m guessing you can do something similar with After Effects, some filters and Photoshopping, lots of keyframing, and patience… I even found a tutorial that has the same general idea entitled “Video Copilot’s Demon Face Warp” but I didn’t have the time to watch and apply it so…
Maybe sometime later, but it was worth for the laughs!

Living Movie Poster – Red One Camera

13 06 2009

I still didn’t write about the incredible RED One camera because I was kinda expecting a video that could show how awesome it is (instead of specs and whatnot)… well, here it is:

Basically, the Red One is a video camera that has the resolution of a professional DSLR (photography) camera, which is something only really big and really really expensive cameras have nowadays.
But don’t get me wrong, RED One isn’t a cheap camera… it’s only cheap when compared to others on the same category.
Anyways, it’s a camera that blurs the line between video and professional photography, one step higher than Canon 5D Mark II since it’s really aimed and has all the advantages of professional movie making, but is also way more expensive too!
