For those of you who are interested in the post-production and special effects side of the modern film industry, this is big news – we’ve gained an official software sponsorship from Red Giant Software! This is a big deal, because this company is behind some of the most intense special effects plugins known to the film industry. They have a list a mile long of films that their software is used in, including Grindhouse, The Aviator, Day After Tomorrow, Vanilla Sky, Hellboy, Spy Kids 3D, Double Dare, Nike commercials, Good Eats, ESPN, Disney, CNN, Good Morning America, FooFighter videos, and MTV shows.
Just some of the effects we’ll be using include:
Knoll Light Factory, created by Academy-Award winner John Knoll, the co-creator of Photoshop and Star Wars effects guru
Magic Bullet Suite, co-developed by industry guru Stu Maschwitz, formerly of Industrial Light and Magic, co-founder of The Orphanage, and author of the popular The DV Rebel’s Guide: An All-Digital Approach to Making Killer Action Movies on the Cheap (a must-have book for anyone who is even considering making their own films independently)
Red Giant is a company about creativity, and innovation – they take magic and make it accessible to us via real-world applications. To say we’re happy to have them sponsor us is an understatement – they embody vision, and we’re no less than excited to have them behind us on this project!
