Digital Effects:
As part of my coursework for my Information Technology minor, I produced the following digitally enhanced video clips using programs such as Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.


For this production reel, I first enhanced a sketch of a rocket in Photoshop. I put all the layers into a 3D space with a camera movement to make it look as if the 2D rocket was flying into the screen.


I first created the explosion using the shatter effect in After Effects. I digitally created the fire and smoke using fractals and colorama. In Photoshop, I used the burn tool to create the illusion that the walls had been charred in the fire.


In this video I keyed out the news anchor, who was in front of a green screen, and added a motion background behind him. I also created subtitles and an ending credit in After Effects.
