MIRROR: (yet to come, hopefully with a better IQ video encoding to capture those stars!)

Sorry it’s a little late, I’ve been fighting to get those stars staying visible and I’m still struggling!

One last render and a Vimeo upload will hopefully fix it.

Cheers

Dave

all pretty cool in their own way but in terms of the fx work I like:

Boban Krsmanovic

Cheers.


#14

Very neat. I’d vote for David Crabtree. His has a simple, elegant style, and is quite original. Abrams-esque lens flares have been done to death; subtlety impresses more than flashiness.
