The Force Jump

Youtube sucks. All hail Vimeo. It may take a while to load.

Force Jump from Filipe Monteiro on Vimeo.

Well... Let's explain...

To do this, I filmed myself jump normally and then I left the camera filming so that I could have a empty background plate. Since there were clouds in the original version and they kept moving, I created a fake sky. It's a solid color but it does the job. If you have a sharp eye (and even if you don't, you're gonna lie about it), you'll notice that I don't have any shadow on the wall. That's because I didn't bother to make a fake shadow, apply motion blur and all that good stuff. Anyway, I made a mask around the small roof above me and I masked my hands on the fake sky. After this, I deleted the Jump Composition and made the mask that was around me go to the air. It took a lot of tweaking before I could get a good result. Some of you may not like it but I am, indeed, pleased with my results. I also made a VFX test for the movie Jumper, which I got the chance to watch yesterday. I'm not sure If I'll upload it. I'm not sure I'll post again. Odds are that I will. Let's await Future's reply shall we?
