Wizards of a Waverly Place – The Movie “Alex vs Alex” Mini Making Of
I was approached by Encore Hollywood to help out on the Wizards of a Waverly Place movie "Alex vs Alex".
I was responsible for most magic wand effects and impacts for ca. 40 shots, this is just a variety selection.
The sporty part was the tight deadline of 4 work weeks for round about 260 elements for 40 shots. Each effect was rendered with a geometry core (a spline rig with noise) and 2 different looks that were each rendered with RGB by velocity and by age which totals to 5 elements for 1 magic wand effect. Some times there is both witches fighting and there are impact bursts. So all in all a tight deadline which averages in 3 shots a day setup and rendered 😀
PFlow with Box#3, FumeFX, Krakatoa and global KCMs for the gradients. Peace out to John Rand who helped with the initial KCM madness.
