Ok, so its time for me to stop using this site like a youtube comment section.

My thoughts on your video.

I thought it was awesome. I am so surprised how interested I was in this video. Do you mined filling me in with a few things?

What did you edit this on?
What plugins did you use?
How did you get the eye color like that?
Where did you get the wardrobe?

What did you edit this on?

Adobe Premiere CS6

What plugins did you use?

As far as plug-ins I only used Element 3D for the helicopter and some shells ejecting out of the gun in the frozen segment. I did my color correction mostly in premiere, and for some shots they were dynamically linked between Premiere and After Effects. I love me some After Effects!

How did you get the eye color like that?

The eye color was done in post by tracking each eye and masking around the retina. It was a little tedious but was cheaper than buying contacts for everyone.

Where did you get the wardrobe?

All the actors supplied their costumes, I had actually never met any of them until the day of shooting. I asked that they send me a picture of their costume after I had given them reference photos of the looks I was going for. The weapons were mine (airsoft).

I'm happy to answer any more questions you have!
