Film and Fx

This page is all about film & FX, here I'll give you tutorials on filming and making good C.G.I with after effects or any other programs. And how to find good SFX.

go ahead and watch this before reading, Ok so you may be wondering how I made this.... well all I did was download the iphone app action movie and use that, the I saved the files on to the camera and emailed them to me, I then put the emailed videos into i movie and cut it together and played around for a bit with the footage. Finally I exported it, put it into garage band as a film score and exported it onto i tunes, and then exported it onto the desktop were I could upload it onto youtube!

Keep an eye out for my new video tutorial!
