Cars vs Helicopter: The Movie!

This isn't animated, but you guys may be interested anyway. My latest movie:

We were playing with these toys in the office 2 Fridays ago and I decided to bust out my little point-and-shoot still camera (that can also record video) and shoot an epic action movie! It doesn't really have a point, and it wasn't thought out at all, but it was fun to make!

(Gel controlled the cars!)

Man! That really was epic! Good job! How exiting! :D

That's some impressive camera work considering it's a point and shooter. Now you should follow up and animate.

this is so much fun!

This was great! Loved that Michael Giacchino music.


2008-05-03 03:35:09

That was awesome!

That was so funny!!! It rocked!!! XD


2008-05-03 06:02:45

AWESOME!! That was really fun! And +10 for using Incredibles music!

Awesome job. I loved it. Sounds definitely did 80% of the job here :)

I agree with luka.The music is just lovely. I love the scene where the camera is down on the carpet and the little car is speeding towards it.


2008-05-03 15:23:42

That is badass! I loved the sound effects, not to mention the classic slow-motion and panning shots.

Very nice.

Isn't at least some of this stop-motion animation?

Dustball responds:

Nope! It's all shot live. But I did take advantage of the camera's 60fps mode to get some smooth looking slow-mo. The only shot that really had some CG work was the super slow-mo of the yellow car going off the ramp. That was just done by holding the car from above, moving it slowly, then I removed the hands frame by frame.

that was pretty epic, great timing and perfect music, I was curious as to how you were gonna control the copter as those tend to be pretty unwieldy, but you made it work with some clever shots.

That was Amazing!!

One of the greatest endings I've ever seen.

Your vid is awesome. Also, after I beat Dad 'n Me, what's the music you used for it? Because it is teh AWESOME.

Dustball responds:

Hmm, I don't remember what music is at the end. I remember the boss music, is that it? I composed all of the music for Dad 'n Me custom for the game.

I know you probably wont answer me but what did you do to live in Hollywood?

I'm guessing by the video thats your house?

I live in a trailer so your one lucky stud.

Meh someday when i turn 18 i am getting the hell out of this town.

Just 2 years left

Dustball responds:

Haha, well thanks for thinking I'm a lucky stud, but that is not my house. That's the office/studio where we create the TV show "SuperNews!" on Current TV.

I just work in Hollywood, I live in Pasadena.

2008-06-01 09:33:24

Anyway that a really good movie it inspires me.
