Secret Asian Man. Or is it Agent?

Secret Agent Challenge Final from destruct007 on Vimeo.

Dave and I tag teamed the hell out of this. This was a CGTalk challenge in which you have a limited amount of time to complete a project based on a theme. While we both worked on it Dave did the brunt of the work shooting, editing, FX, audio, modeling and comp. along with a slew of other things it took to get this done. I did about 6 or 7 shots and created the title sequence. My work revolved around creating some CG assets and comping the shots he assigned me. Here is a list of what I worked on.


I created the holographic pen hud that he opens with the schematic. This shot worked out really well because dave had the foresight to create a green practical light cast on the actor.


In this shot I simply added the other actor on the left. It’s the same actor on the right just added. You know multiplicity effect.

evilMoonBase1 and 2

In this shot i created the matte with the earth and moon surface along with the 3d window in front of the actor. I created a 2.5D comp for this to create a subtle camera push in and cast the actors shadow on the wall with a light using the footage as the occluding object for the light.


In this shot the actor or spy is attempting to hack the terminal on the wall. This one took me a little longer because I didn’t know what I was going to put on the wall for him to hack so things just fell into place as I worked. I created the 3d assets, lighting, and comp.


In this shot the actor is on the edge of a building escaping from whatever peril he is in. Just some masking/roto and matte pf buildings.


In this shot the spy is using a computer touch screen to disable a bomb. You may have to watch it a couple of times to get that from it because there is a lot oging on all at once but I had hoped the timer couting down would get that across.

Well that’s all I did. Dave did the rest and I’m happy with how it turned out.Special thanks to Dave for including me in the project and my girlfriend for not leaving me while I worked.
