Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview: Shoot, blend, stylize, and loop, part of Practical Motion Background Workshop.
We're going to start by looking at some shooting techniques.…I'm going to just show you things I have developed over the years to create…these footage plates that are really useful for these abstract backgrounds.…Some will be super practical, some will be very experimental, and you'll…go ahead and be able to use these with your own footage and items and try some things out.…Don't worry. To get you started,…I also let you download some of the footage we shoot today, so you can use that…later on in the activities.…Once you've done shooting, you get organized, and we're going to do this with…Adobe Bridge, as well as a nonlinear editing tool. You're basically just bringing…the clips in and getting rid of the slop and saving out the best parts.…
When that's done we'll go ahead and stack layers, and by using things like…blending modes you can mix those layers together to get all new looks.…So, two or three source layers can be combined in lots of different ways to get…entirely new backgrounds from a small pool of source material.…
