Unearthed - The Ghosts


The cemetery set will be populated with ghosts, watching Herbie as he makes his way to a particular grave...they won't do much, and so, are very simplistic puppet-wise....no legs or hands, just stumpy little armatured arms and necks with Sculpey heads, attached to tie-downs with a single strand of armature wire....I haven't completely decided on the technique I'll use to make them transparent, but right now the plan is to shoot them in front of a greenscreen and plug them into the footage...tests coming soon.....

Oh! I like them! My brain's already thinking: Opacity 50%... Luminosity 150%... Gaussian blur 2 pixels...

Does Sony Vegas have those sorts of controls?

Thanks folks!
Svengali, yup! I'm also considering tacking on a circular feathered cookie cutter around each ghost, so that I can fade them out completely at the feet...test coming tonight, hopefully :)

Oh, and, Shelley....theatrical, definitely....maybe even Taymor-esque? :)

Love the ghosties! Set pieces are great too!

Your compositing layers are making my brain hurt though...

Great to see so much happening.
