Smile FX WARS! THE BIG FREEZE:Alex

Hello everyone.

For this challenge I will be doing a flash freeze, basically this is how the film goes

- shot of park bench, in the sky a fighter jet flies past, environment turns to ice(live action camera match)
-front shot of plane
-top shot of wing in focus with ground out of focus
-focus changes to the ground which is turning to ice
-if i can get footage, a shot of the inside of the jet with the fighter pilot(maybe roto out some stock footage)
-wide shot of plane in the sky getting chased by swirling clouds or something, ground freezing
-shot of the back of the plane starting to freeze
-front shot the plane
-plane flies into camera then into the engine
-engine freezing and stopping
-plane falling through clouds
-plane falls into frozen house and slides into camera, comes to a stop(live action camera track)
-Shot of the back of the plane slowly rising, massive city frozen( live action, cg, matte painting)

I'll try and get most of that in, some of the shots i.e the ones that combine live action may be very difficult, but thats why its a challenge.

Please suggest anything that could make it better

Storyboards will be posted tomorrow (just finishing the final ones)

Don't forget the killer robot dinosaurs

Seriously, that's a lot of work. Makes what I have planned seem quaint by comparison. I hope you are able to finsh it, I would love to see that scene!

Yeah, I would love to see it too. But I wonder if that isn't a bit much work for two months and one (?) man...

Cool, thant's actually similar to what I have been storyboarding only mine just deals with a plane and not any closeups of the ground. I am using a Cessna instead of a jet as well. It will be interesting to compare notes as we go.

Looking very nice!

But what's gonna happen to your pilot...? You don't want to let him die after such a close call escape and a crash, do you? Make him climb off the plane doing, 'wow that was great, can I do it again' or something...

Keep up the good work!
