FILMMAKERS: We need you for the FXWARS

Hi guys Roberto here.

As you know I am trying to get off the ground the FXWARS section of the CGTALK forum.

The idea is that people are supposed to produce VFX shots from in a month and a 1/2.
At the end people vote for what they think is the best vfx shot.
The Challenges vary from week to week. So far we have done 3 successful challenges that have been completely synthetic in nature:
CgTalk:FXWars! Roller Coaster Challenge:3
CgTalk:FXWars! Snow Avalanche Challenge:2
CgTalk:FXWars! Catapult! (Trebuchet) Challenge:1


This week we started doing the first FXWARS micro challenge that uses live action footage,

As you might image, we are in dire need of filmmakers., for this project.
Depending on the success of this challenge we might do more future fxwars challenges that use live action footage.

And if you wish to add a micro storyline (sparky the do against the volcano) and post a micro film on the forum, it is cool.

If you feel you can help us, please reply to this thread.

Thanks,

-Roberto

Tell me more

Hey Roberto,

I'm a self-proclaimed filmmaker (got a BFA) who works in visual effects. I might be able to help. Can you tell me more about what you are looking for and how I could get the footage to you?

That sounds great Roberto.
Been looking for anything like this for almost a year....so.....count me in.
Just one question, is there a standard the footage must fit (NTSC, PAL, etc...)?
Cheers,
Khalor

I love the idea of a micro-story - if anyone's interested I'd love to help with that. Story ideas through to storyboard (assuming its short ;-) )

Can't offer any film-production and I'm no good at fx....

but a good opportunity to voice that I think your passion for challenges (and their spirit) isgreat!

I have in mind some future FXWARS projects that will require A LOT of plate photography and in some cases a micro storyline... Anyone interested ?
