Instagrammed Insanity

Not to be outdone by our teammate Dave, our other designer Shaun Saperstein has brought After Effects chops to Instagram. Check out this bit of mayhem.

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:

  1. I made a fool of myself in an empty street. (image)
  2. 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)
  3. I slowly built up the traffic  and choreographed the cars to give the illusion of almost hitting me. (image)
  4. Added back in the motion blur. (image)
