And no, I won’t be letting the Micronaxx see this and get any ideas (or about lightsabering open bottles, for that matter).
Shaun’s brief summary of how he pulled this off:
- I made a fool of myself in an empty street. (image)
- From the same vantage point as the previous shot, I took footage of just cars going by. I made sure to shoot them at a high shutter speed, reducing the motion blur and making them easier to rotosope. Then I roto-ed them out to place in the footage where I was running. (image)
- I slowly built up the traffic and choreographed the cars to give the illusion of almost hitting me. (image)
- Added back in the motion blur. (image)
