Smoke trails FX

Posted by on Mar 11, 2014 in Film Projects, News

I been filming some smoke trails against the green screen today for my upcoming “Care Home” short film [working title].
The smoke film is 2 mins long and the final clip will be 4-5 seconds, so I have plenty of material to make 3-4 plume copies from different time stamps.
