There is an effect that I would like to emulate and practice on.
It is from :28 to :55 of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGnZzOGx ... re=related
It is those box things between the characters and the grayed out background. I really like how they have they have borders, represent different parts of the same clip, they move, and how they all came together to complete the clip at one point. I tried different things such as the cookie cutter, but I wasn't able to come up with anything that resembled it. :/ My knowledge is limited, but I'm trying to learn how to do more things.
