Cary Brooks & Aaron Star
On Visual Effects Workflow, Camera Formats & Framing

Visual Effects Workflow for Independent Film
Visual effects for film has a long and fascinating history, and technological advances have brought the tools for creating and incorporating VFX well within reach of the independent filmmaker. Cary will present an overview and brief history of visual effects, demonstrate some common visual effects tools and techniques, and discuss concepts related to planning, shooting and generating VFX elements for lower-budget productions.
Cary is an independent filmmaker, photographer, and all-around geek. He has produced, edited, directed and created visual effects for several shorts and web series in Albuquerque, in addition to producing 50+ hours of audiovisual media content for an international insurance brokerage. Cary is also a certified remote pilot and aerial cinematographer, shooting aerial footage for several local independent film productions. His VFX and editing work can be seen in the short film Knots, currently featured on the Santa Fe Network web site at http://santafenetwork.tv
