    Default Cat Shark - Take Two

    For lack of nothing better to do, I spent the afternoon "enhancing" the short video. It is now even more absurd with a modified title graphic, a piece of additional footage, some Foley and sight gags. All just for fun, of course.

    That's better than the first one.

    Fun and I liked it, you must have spent quite a while on this.
    If possible, I'd suggest some "cutaways" ( or is that Cataways? ), when the cat pauses ( pawses? ). These would need to be taken quite close-up with a matching background, although you might try a tiny green-screen studio. ( although as the grass will be green, I guess another strong colour would be better - any chroma-key colour will work ).

    The "black cat" may present an exposure problem in close-up, but overexposing when taking can be adjusted in Edit, would be my guess. You might try animating several stills, even...


    Nice Try.

    Yes, I used your bump-map technique to enhance the title.

    I suggest getting down to their level by making/using a rig to let you get a lower to the ground perspective.

    FOR THE RECORD: The video was not planned. It was the result of a spontaneous moment which I was fortunate enough to catch with my cell phone's camera while it unfolded in the front yard out where I work. The video was put together after I viewed the raw footage and realized the potential for using it to edit together a funny story. Believe me, no matter how well you plan shots, getting animals to perform on cue never works. So, everybody stop with the suggestions of using a rig to get a lower shot or using a tiny green screen studio. This is the stuff of reality, not something subject to theoretical exercises in filmmaking techniques. Get a grip.

    And these are so often the videos we cherish or produce the most laughs. Sometimes the fun is capturing the moment, not labouring over filming.
