Salute all!

 

My younger brother and I have been working on a short film/documentary concerning WW1 Ace Frank Luke Jr.'s final flight. We actually started on the project way back in 2013, but have had to set it aside at various points along the way due to real life concerns.   :mellow:  <_<

 

I released a post about our effort on the Rise of Flight forums in 2014, promising a trailer for the film. ( http://riseofflight.com/forum/topic/44210-frank-luke-jrs-last-flight-today-rof-movie-progress/?p=652723) Well...after more than a year, it's finally here!   B)

 


 

The short film itself is in the final stages of editing.Then we'll present it to our test audience, make the necessary tweaks, and publish it to YouTube!  :D

Pay no mind to the trolls! I had one fella drop on my channel and tell me my voice was annoying. Can't please everyone so don't bother with it.

 

Love the intro, what program are you doing your animations with? rendering yourself? (I am assuming pilot on the ground)

 

 

 

If you need any help let me know!

Thanks for the kind words Kempf! :)

What we're doing is green-screening actual actors and digitally subbing them into footage from Rise of Flight. All the extra visual stuff you see (like the balloon exploding, pilot on the ground, and cool orange sky) would be the work of my younger brother Shaw. He does all the special effects and doctors up the raw ROF footage in a program called Hitfilm 2 Ultimate. Thanks to him, "Legend of Murvaux" looks 100x better than if I had tried to do it all on my own. I really think he might have a career ahead as a graphic designer or film editor. B)

 

Here's a couple photos of our green screen rig all set up:
