Although, morbid, the intent was to demonstrate a headshot effect for those looking to have one in their film. Believe me when I say it comes up a lot.
This was originally a Video Copilot Tutorial (#13) that I decided to expand upon. The original video had NO audio whatsoever. The audio was a mix of audio assets to bring this clip to life. I used After Effects, Premiere Pro and Audition CS5.5 for this particular effect.
The downside was this video is from an OLD tutorial that utilized older DV footage. Still a good effect but, of course newer HD video will allow for a more hi-res VFX to be shown. If time allows, or I create this effect on one of the upcoming project for ViRTUAL INTERACTiVE, Inc. I’ll definitely post it here.
