How to get this shot?
« on: June 19, 2014, 04:44:24 AM »
For my next short - I'm needing something like this..

Static shot of a skyline - maybe out of a window. Everything is normal... then a bright flash in the sky - maybe a hue change temporarily during the flash (think LOST when the swan station implodes) - then back to normal..  a second later a Jet goes by the window obviously crashing or maybe crashes into the window...

This is probably way over my head but would really add a punch if I could throw it in during the opening sequence.

Shoot a skyline with an as uniformly colored sky as possible (you will mask it out with a color key and replace it with a sky image that matches your idea of the scene) head over to after effects and composite flash and the plane scene. You should find free tutorials on all this over at, once done post it here!
