For the past three weeks we have been working on a scene for a short feature. This video is an effects and costume test for this particular scene. It required some complicated keying and compositing work in the editor to pull it together. After we work on the Genie's costume and his acting, we will do the actual scene again. What I would appreciate is your observations about the technical work and the 'feel' of the story as it unfolds. Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Note, I have redone the Genie smoke in the last part of the scene. I think this looks better. [video below is now revised take]
