This is the final version of the opening to the live event held yearly at AFO. I’ve spent a lot of time on this one and I hope you enjoy it.

One thing I am proud of is how crisp it looks, if you recall most of the footage was filmed on blue screen and through a series of filters I’ve gotten all of us to separate from the background clean and clear.

After that I thought James looked a little lonely, so I decided to put the rest of us in the back ground with a little blur. The problem is that I forgot to film Allen from head to toe like I did with Buck and I.

There’s a lot of ways to fix this but since I have the darkness of metal added to the entire video I figured I could get away with just painting on simple legs.

I say simple because I’m not adding grain or color to them, but they are still pretty complex because Allen does a lot of swaying as he rocks and I want it to be seamless so I have to keyframe EVERY frame that he is on screen.
