[PHENOMENA] Strange lights in the sky
« on: November 12, 2011 »
So, here it is! My friends are a bit late for LAN party, my cat is sleeping and I had some time to halfly finish at least my proof of concept.
I wanted to reproduce the corny videos of UFOs in youtube, showing little camera shaking, zooming, scratching noises, people shouting "WTF" and stuff. I normally wanted to script many different UFO experiences from typical UFO lights to the Norwegian spiral, fade from one to other, maybe some scary text, quite scripted stuff, but anyways I did the most part of a single scene to show my concept. It can be better and I might work for it in the future for a demo entry or a screensaver. It's an old idea I had before even finding about this compo.

I have just seen there is another UFO entry from another contestant posted. Today will be fun :)

Hey Optimus,

that is a F/A/N/T/A/S/T/I/C idea ... I wonder why no one else every thought on this.

Your demo gives a good insight in the basic idea. The camera shaking and the background sound/voices already creates a good atmosphere. Please keep the development of that idea up.

Nice to see that you made this intro for this challenge. Would love to see more scenes.

Anyways, great work!

My AV detects "HIPS/Proc-inj0001", but as for the effect itself, it reminded me of Cloverfield.

I thought I was watching captured video at first. Excellent!
