I’m sitting in the DIY session at Pixelodeon on Special Effects with Rudy of Galacticast and Eric of Indy Mogul. Please enjoy these tips and links!
* Storyboard before you shoot. It will save you time and help you film complex-looking scenes bu using perspective and lines of motion to create the effect. It will make the shooting go so much faster too.
* Get a little bit of cheap lighting to help light your scene. Good lighting will make it easier to apply special effects in the editing process. Household lighting can be used!
* Search craft stores and garage sales to assemble stuff for making props. A little bit of spray paint can really create a realistic looking item.
