    Awkward Moments:
    This movie is a compilation of every day awkward moments, and how the main character Randy solves them.

    This was my first time using Adobe After Effects, but by the last scene, I had gotten the hang of it. In my opinion, I think the VFX looks odd, because it's in HD, yet the footage was shot in SD. I played around with some HD stock footage after I finished Awkward Moments, and the effects looked better on that. I used clips from the Action Essentials 2 pack to create the blood, shells, and muzzle flashes.

    Questions/Comments/Constructive Criticism would be great [​IMG]

    Edit: Here's the sequel!

    lol That's pretty funny. One question, how did you get away with using a fake gun in a school? [​IMG]

    Thanks guys. We actually got the gun from the media arts teacher! She had a bag of four or five guns hidden in her office, hahah. She let the secretary know that we were going to be using a gun and it was all good.

    The first time we filmed the scene where I get shot by the ATM, a teacher walked out as I fell to the floor. She freaked out a little, but we let her know we were filming, and it was all clear [​IMG]

    I spent a lot of time on the After Effects on this one. We had some shots that I didn't really think through when filming, so some of the effects were tough to pull off.

    Thanks guys, it means a lot! I've been getting lots of positive response, so it's good to see we've entertained a few people (except my mother...I don't think she enjoyed seeing me getting shot).

    Your mother doesn't want you to to be hurt by others. She cares for you very much that's because she's your mother. [​IMG] (LOL! Sorry for my bad English. ^^''')

    No no, I totally understand. I'm sure if I had kids, I'd feel the same. Besides the violent content, she enjoyed it [​IMG]

    I bet that your mother laugh besides the violent content. And maybe she's thinking that you're good in acting. [​IMG]
