After Effects magic combat scene

Independent film making

I am looking for an experienced VFX artist with strong skills in After Effects (CS5 preferred) to produce a 1 minute magic combat scene

Job Description:

Your responsibilities:

Starting from raw green-screen footage of about 4 minutes, the AE artist will create a 1 minute battle scene between two young characters. The scene could follow a Harry Potter type of model (or similar, see links below)

The work entails the following activities

- Select the parts of the footage that are best suited for the scene, combining shots from two different camera angles

- In some cases, the two characters will need to be edited separately and then re-combined for better synchronization of the movements (e.g. to synch the release of energy by one character with the other character falling on the ground)

- Stabilizing the footage as needed

- Create energy rays/ waves, force shields, etc through separate footage (e.g. video copilot Action Essentials) or AE plug-ins (e.g. Trapcode Particular, light factory, etc)

- Add credible animation (scale, anchor point, position) to the two characters' movement to emphasize the effects of energy release (including for example simulated damage to the background scene)

- Add sound effects synchronizing them with video

- Possibly some time-remapping for adding dramatic effects by switching from slow to regular motion

- Compositing, keying, color correction, adding depth of field or motion blur as needed

- Some limited roto work might be needed for shots where one of the character moves out of the green screen

- Adding a background (which I will provide), parenting it to the characters' movements and animation as needed

The final output should include:

- The final fully composited and rendered clip (quicktime or avi)

- The After Effects CS5 file used for compositing (so that I can make any further adjustments if needed)

The SD raw footage can be seen (front view) on:
