    Default Vodka Explosion

    Last year I gathered many friends and we created a parody action movie called Vodka Explosion. The story is actually based off a true story but exaggerated to a big extent and that was why we made the movie, just for fun. However, after making this movie I got several job offers here in Salem Oregon to create promotional videos for companies with a pay rate of $50 an hour. The video doesn't have an amazing story, it is suppose to be funny and not serious at all, and shows what you can do with a $300 camera and creative editors. I have several other films but I don't feel like posting them so enjoy this one(the editting) and tell me your comments.

    I only watched the trailers (Too busy for a 32Mb download).

    You are quite right the editing in the second trailer is much better. Definitely a very arty and professional feel to both trailers. Both are well edited, although I thought the 'motion blur' in the first was a bit overdone.

    Good compostion, good editing, excellent use of sound.

    Well done!

    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc

    Remember, there is always more to learn than there is to teach.

    That was really cool. I got some questions and suggestions:

    How did you go about making muzzle flashes for the weapons?
    Were those airsoft guns?
    Did the guy with the light blue shirt at the end have an erection?

    The music was cool.

    I especially enjoyed the part where the guy with the red jacket kicked the gun from the one laying down then put a few rounds into him.

    If you make another video with shooting, try this : http://www.exposure.co.uk/eejit/blood/

    ---it worked for for me, look at my video under user videos---its called The Accomplice, I used this technique and it came out pretty cool.

    Good work.

    1. Using an image like this you can easily add muzzle flash. All you need to do is go to the individual frame you want to add it to in your editor, then add a luma key to the muzzle flash image. Luma key gets rid of all the black and blends it with the video.

    2. Those were no airsoft guns, they were all plastic toy guns that we spray painted.

    3. Yes, a fake one (stick) which adds to the humor... and no I didn't know that he did that until after all editing was complete.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the movie.[b]
