Developer Diary: Persona Live Action "Short Film" pt.3 or: Filming is done!

Hey Everyone,

It's been quite a long time since the last post, however that doesn't mean I haven't been busy! My brothers and I finished all the filming last weekend in 4 hours. We had a few hiccups along the way involving security and blocking access to the fire escape, but other than that it went pretty smoothly.

I decided that I would star in the film as the main character, as it seemed it would be the best choice in terms of convenience. However through this process I have learned that I am a terrible actor, but thanks to the magic wonders of editing the performance ended up pretty decent in the raw footage.

I just finished the rough edit of the raw footage and have just begun the initial composting work for the card shattering into glass effect when the character summons his persona.

I created a still for you guys to enjoy.

As for the coming weeks, I will be fleshing out the rest of the effects shots. I have decided to add a few more effects than I originally intended for this project, but I don't think it will affect my time line too much. I am shooting to have this project done by the 24th but It will probably be a few weeks longer than that, depending if my other classes take too much of my time.

Until next time!

About sylphxone of us since 11:50 PM on 05.20.2008

Hey guys my name is Michael Ferster.

I am currently a 4th year media arts major at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, majoring specifically in 3d Animation. I also have passions for industrial design/ and also Marketing and business (specifically online). I work as a graphic designer and on the side I do 3d animation/modeling contract jobs for rich oil companies.

My favorite games have been J-RPG's ever since FF1. I also play way too much DoTA, if anyone wants a match me and my friends hang out in the channel "tex" in us west on some evenings. I used to play a lot of fps' back in the day (Which was a Wednesday, btw) but not so much anymore.

Favourite games:
Chrono trigger
Megaten games
Final Fantasy games
Defense of the Ancients

If you have any questions about doing stuff in spore or 3d modeling in general feel free to ask, and I will hopefully be able to steer you in the right direction in the least.
