2009 – Scene 36: Grand Finale


For the grand finale we knew we wanted it to be just that… GRAND.  The question was how to take all the madness that appeared in the previous 2 minutes of the video and tie it all together.  The answer was a giant cake and fireworks.  As Ian began filming and compositing everything together in After Effects Devin animated this bit of fireworks on the down-shooter.  Nothing like cotton, tin foil strips and sequins in the hands of a great animator…

Some other effects that got composited in were sparklers and party poppers.  The party poppers were back lit and filmed in slow motion at 60 frames per second so we could actually see what was happening.  As is typically the case, cleaning up is just plain exhausting!
