This is an hommage to 1950s black and white kaiju movies like the black and white Godzilla movies.
Behind the scene notes:
Between my gf and me there is a joke: "Is there a squirrel in your video? No? Than it sucks!" ... Let's turn this around and put squirrels in this. Not just squirrels, but our favourite plushies that we love so much. So I got her a greenscreen morphsuite and put her into the professional greenscreen studio at my workplace. It's an idea, that I thought about pulling of at last year's YuniCon convention.
This was filmed with a Sony FX6. Some parts are even in 120fps 4k, but I don't think there was a visible benefit to it to be honest. Some assets like smokeclouds were created with Stable Diffusion and Midjourney AI. The reason is that, even if you pay for stock footage like Envato Elements, these kind assets are harder to come by than I would have thought. So why not generate them by myself and increase my AI skills too?
The video editing was smooth and fast. The cut was done in less than 8 hours. Most time took scene searching and of course the massive compositing work. My gf was so sweet to learn masking and helped me out on so many scenes. Love.
Also I was able to pull off every 42 scenes on sets in less than 42 hours and the vast majority worked out like a charm in post. This makes me quite proud.
Please let us know, what you think about this AMV!
