How To Put Your Friends Into TRON: Legacy

Hey guys!

As promised in last week’s blog post, this week’s post is all about the making of The Wedding Gift of Amuno Kensai, specifically the TRON: Legacy section (which starts at about 9:20 if you want to skip to the VFX extravaganza).

I’ll let the video do all the explaining. It walks you through everything from how we made the TRON suits to how I composited the actors into the TRON environment using After Effects and Cinema 4D. Below the video I’ve posted links to various TRON resources I found and utilized when making this video, in case you’re thinking about making your own TRON video!

If you enjoy the video please share it on Facebook and tweet it to your friends!

I'm a co-founder of Finite Films, and I directed the shorts You Are Here, Defenseless, Mistletoe, and Imperfect. Besides writing and directing I'm generally known for being the "VFX-guy" and for obsessing about new Apple products or video games. Currently writing a new film noir-esque short.
