Experiments with After Effects

Experiments with After Effects – I’ve always wanted to do a light saber effect. I recently upgraded to Adobe CS 5.5 and decided to try. This is the first test. I had some problems with key-framing the glowing effect with the dowel I used for a prop. After compositing, I imported the file into Premiere Pro to add the sound effects. Check out other videos on my YouTube site at Sleeping Dragon Studios.

David N. DeMattia’s artistic style reflects the influence of his childhood in Southern California, where he spent a fair amount of time at Disneyland. He spent as much of his time at the park as possible and the rest of it in his mother’s garage, learning the secrets of animating creatures, like the ones those now famous Disney “Imagineers” had done. By age twelve, David had brought animatronic creatures to life and his fertile imagination continues to spawn strange and wonderful animals that reveal themselves to us through his sculpture.
