Update #9

After Effects

4 comments

Several months ago I began preparing for this project, funding for it, shooting it and even editing it. Unfortunately my work ended when it came to the animation of the moon. To create this effect, a program called After Effects is used to track an image of the moon over the physical balloon. Although tracking a giant white circle might seem easy, creating a realistic product is not always simple. I have been struggling daily to find people willing to painstakingly edit frame by frame to create this look. Andrew, a young man in Indiana worked with me nonstop to create one of the most beautiful shots in the story and his finished product was flawless. However, he - like me - is still a student and his talent is needed for other projects he's committed too. Right now, I need a professional. I've been constantly on the lookout for someone who works with the program for a living and can complete Moon in a timely manner. I just feel extremely bad every time someone asks me how Moon is coming along because I know that so many people like you put effort into funding the project or filming. I hate making people wait for results.

Please keep me updated on yourselves and let me know if you can help in any way. I sent out an information request form concerning backer rewards, but no one replied. Let me know if you're still interested.
