Watch: Projection Mapping and Creating the “Beam of Light” Illusion from Metropolis

25 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Shanks FX’s latest instructional video centers on the in-camera effect of projection mapping. Beginning with the “beam of light ” effect, created by cinematographer and VFX artist Eugen Schüfftan (Metropolis, Eyes Without a Face), Joey Shanks demonstrates how with a camera, a one way mirror, a projector and a computer at the controls, you can create the illusion of a three-dimensional conic light. Shanks also explains how to render a light tunnel on an one-dimensional black board. Good low-budget techniques to keep in your backpocket for sci-fi, dream sequences and the like. »
