Chapter: Visual and Creative Effects
Topic: Reproducing TV or Film Effects
As you know we are massive fans of Daniel Wallace / Tim Burton’s Big Fish film. One the scenes we attempt to replicate in teaching basic Final Cut techniques is the time freeze scene. This the point in the film with Edward Bloom sees the love of this life, see below. The scene is brilliant and uses a bit of CGI for the popcorn etc but it is possible to recreate this concept on a basic level using a mix of careful production and post production techniques. Obviously we won’t have the popcorn or accurate masking but it is great start if you are new to post production with Final Cut or Final Cut Express.
