For a film school grad project, we are creating an action short that involves sword fighting in a video game environment. In this film, when a person is 'killed', they respawn just like in most video games. We want someone to create a cool visual effect (possibly using After Effects) for the moment that someone is killed: the person will vanish in a grey/black cloud of ash/smoke like particles. For your reference, check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmliHtiLiik The effect you create should be similar, although not necessarily identical to this.
This seems to be a tutorial showing you how to do the effect: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiWHXsvLQ8A, although if you have the skills, feel free to use any technique to create this effect.
The original footage involving the actors has not yet been shot, and your bid will inform the final visual effects budget of the film.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any additional questions before you submit your bid.
