VFX Breakdown of 3113

An in depth look at the process behind the visual effects for the sci-fi short film "3113". This breakdown is a brief glimpse the process behind the visual effects within only the first 30 seconds of the short.

This breakdown was originally presented for MAXON Cinema 4D at Siggraph LA where I did a presentation of the tools I used to make the short which can be seen here

There is MUCH more behind the scenes than this including the practical effects that were done. One day I hope to share all of that as well. Until then, there is this.

3113 goes to SIGGRAPH 2012!

Eric Demeusy here, I am excited to announce that I will be presenting at this years SIGGRAPH 2012.  It will take place August 7th-9th at the LA Convention Center in Downtown LA.  I will be there on Tuesday, August 7th for a few hours at the Maxon booth doing a presentation on the VFX behind 3113 using Maxon Cinema 4D

I was asked by the folks at Maxon to do a 50 minute presentaion.  I will be going behind the scenes in a VFX breakdown showing how I created some of the shots from the opening scene of 3113.  It should be fun, interesting and educational.  I will be there to take questions as well.

So I hope to see you there!

Teaser Trailer!

Hello everyone!  It has been a very busy month.  Some exciting things in store to come soon.  Last month was the 10 day event of the L.A. Film Fest where 3113 played three times in front of sold out audiences.  In preparation for the festival a teaser trailer was put together and released on Film Independents youtube site as well as the L.A. Festivals web site.  We have been holding out for the festival as it was the only place to check out the teaser trailer.  

Now comes the time where we are happy to officially release it online here first for everyone to see!  Back in March we released the first 30 seconds of the film and this is a follow up to that.

We still have a handful of festivals that are pending and some that have yet to be applied to.  Once we have finished the festival run we will decide what the best outlet for 3113 will be.

In the mean time we have been underwraps on a new project that is in development stage right now.  Spread the word on 3113! Like us on Facebook and Twitter.  Tell your friends!

Thank you!

The Great L.A. Film Festival Experience

Having been the first film festival I have ever attended I can't tell if I have been missing out on film festivals altogether or if the L.A. Film Festival is superb among the top festivals.  I didn't know what I was in store for when 3113 was accepted to the festival.  From a filmmaker and movie geek point of view it had everything you could dream of and more.  Fantastic films to watch, words of wisdom from top industry professionals and all access admission.  It was one of the best cinematic experiences I have ever had.

The festival kicked off on a Thursday where Kyle and I arrived with our priority passes that admitted access to everything the festival had going on.  We started at the Dolby Digital Lab in Burbank where we toured the new Dolby Atmos sound system in their custom crafted theater.  We watched sample clips mixed with the new sound system that went all the way around and above your ears, bringing a whole new experinece to the movie theaters.  Later that night we went down to L.A. Live to the Regal Cinema for the red carpet premiere of Woody Allen's new film To Rome with Love where we walked the red carpet and watched Woody Allen himself introduce the film.  After the film we went up to the after party and mingled with other filmmakers. 

The next day we went to a DGA meeting at Flemings Steakhouse for a luncheon and learned the in and outs of the DGA.  That night 3113 played in front of a sold out audience.

We sat front row watching a panel discussion with the writer and cast of AMC's Breaking Bad.  We had the same front row view just yards away from discussions with Danny Elfman, Wally Pfister, Aaron Sorkin and Greg Mottola.  We also sat in on a panel with writers John August and Zak Penn.

Had the pleasure of checking out Disney Pixar's Brave in 3D before it hit theaters.  Other films we saw were, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Celeste and Jesse Forever, Juan of the Dead and Vampira and Me.  Whenever we had down time we headed to the filmakers lounge where there was free Vitamin water, couches and AC.

3113 played to another sold out audience on Monday night that left some audience memebers without seats.  The festival programmers ended up adding a third screening for those left out for the upcoming Saturday night which again played to a sold out audience.

The last night of the festival was Steven Soderberg's Magic Mike where he introduced the film personally.  It was followed by an after party at the famous Club Nokia at L.A. Live.  As the night went on and the dance floor filled up, it was a good conclusion to the overall festival experience and left me sad to say goodbye.  Such a good experience with great memories and good people.  Although we were fortunate enough to experience this through the acceptance of 3113, you dont need to have your film accepted to attend.  You can purchase various passes online and I would recommend it to anyone.  Hears to next year!  

Cheers,

Eric
