Filmmaker Showcases The Power Of Green Screens By Comparing The Behind-The-Scenes And The Final Cut Of His Series

There’s no doubt that creating a movie is a long and exhausting process. All that we–the outsiders of the craft–know is that it all starts with a story then moves to months of development, followed by several long months of production, and is finished after a handful of months spent editing and perfecting the film. After all of the necessary work is done, the feature is presented to the audience who decide its fate. If you want to get a clearer idea of how it all works, there’s plenty of industry professionals who are willing to share the details of their work. Some of them can even teach you a thing or two about their job.

Recently, a filmmaker and VRX artist, Ian Hubert, shared side by side comparisons from his upcoming TV series ‘Dynamo Dream’

One of those people is a filmmaker and visual effects (VFX) artist called Ian Hubert. The man who is known for his work in Project London, Dynamo, and Tears of Steel has been making tutorials to show how he creates visual effects for movies. Recently, he took his passion project, the upcoming TV series ‘Dynamo Dream’ as an example to show how stunning digital environments can be created with the help of a green screen and an animation software called Blender.

The artist reveals that the series was made with the help of a green screen and a powerful opensource software called Blender

Ian has been working on Dynamo Dream for the past couple of years. The artist says that he got a bit hung up because he “wanted the first episode to be a bit over the top.” Clearly, he succeeded. The teaser trailer of the series quickly went viral. Both the trailer and his behind the scenes footage have gathered millions of views online.

The whole series is made by merging real life with intricate digital creations and Hubert demonstrates how it’s done on his YouTube channel

People are also taking an interest in his teaching videos, where Ian shares his detailed knowledge on how to make movies yourself. As it turns out, the free and open-source Blender software makes it quite easy to create visual effects, the only thing you need is a good teacher and that’s where Ian comes in. The artist shares tutorials on his YouTube channel for free, but those who are supporting him on Patreon get even more valuable tips.

Here’s the complete teaser trailer for Dynamo Dream

I think it must be very difficult for actors to work in a green screen situation, as is so often the case these days, and yet to deliver a performance that is deeply felt, authentic, and believable. I think that may be one reason why there are so many lackluster movies and shows out there lately? This green screen thing is a great way for studios to save money. But so many other things might be compromised if we go overboard with it. I think the film industry needs to find a better balance, and get back to making higher quality pictures.

I imagine it must be like play pretend when you're kids, but have no toys on you, just a lot of imagination. I imagine it's more difficult for graphic workers, it's a lot of of unthankful work.

Trouble is once someone tells you how fake it all is it really starts to show. Look at the door at 0.40, the outside has panels that look raised yet when the door opens the panels on what was the inside are there but look completely flat. Were they supposed to be like that, there is shading etc there that suggests they should have been pronounced but they aren't? Plus, watch the feet as they walk out the door, the step they take doesn't seem to match up very well with what is there. Don't get me wrong it's clever but just doesn't look polished enough for too much scrutiny.
