I stumbled across this book written by seriously clever vfx guy Stu Maschwitz. Besides providing the universe with amazing vfx, he also keeps a great blog.
Stu Maschwitz worked for ILM but to start his own VFX house with some other folks called The Orphanage. Since then they have grown to be one of the leading VFX houses in the world.
Back in university days I found an After Effects plugin that Stu Maschwitz wrote with a few guys called “Magic Bullet” & “Look Suite” – some tools to cleverly turn an interlaced frame into a clean progressive image, and also easily apply stylised colour grades. It was aimed at the indy film maker to help get their works looking a lot more pro.
Anyway, it looks as though he’s written a book which I am sure is going to be very useful for us folks out their that shoot DV and want to make shit look cool! 🙂
I just ordered it. Check it out:
