Kefka Palazzo Production Video | After Effects

Kefka Palazzo Production Video | After Effects

This is a video I created with image stills of the products, materials and gear used to create the Kefka Palazzo photoshoot.

The self portrait images are of my own creation as is the video, which was produced in After Effects and Camtasia Studio 8.

I needed to beef up my After Effects skills some because I need to use it for my portfolio class, so this seemed like a great time to try out some of the composition creation effects I have learned from videocopilot.com.

Opening Music is from Overclocked: Final_Fantasy_6_Cantata_for_Dancing_I_Mors_ego_sum_mortis_OC_ReMix

Additional music is Final Fantasy VI – Kefka’s Theme (Zenji Dubstep Remix) at https:__www.youtube.com_watch?v=0_gkOZ1M0xI

I hope you enjoy! ♥

School Work – Week 4 | Final Term | Food Meets Design

School Work – Week 4 | Final Term

Food Meets Design

This week, for my class photography project, we were focusing on food photography and typographic design. We were charged with shooting food and then either writing the recipe or ad text to complete the image. For me, I decided to use a recipe for my favorite energy juice that I drank before I started my Sunday homework marathon.

Since practicing yoga, gyming it up more, and working towards a more balanced trinity of mind, body and spirit, I have found raw or clean eating to be key.

I am kind of glad I had an assignment that allowed me to showcase it! 

I hope you enjoy! ♥



Cheers!

School Work – Week 4 | Final Term

Fight Scene

This was a fight scene I choreographed with the FBX plug-in for 3ds Max to render these bipeds in a very brief battle. The assignment called for using guides to mimic a fight, but since the file would not work on my computer for some reason, I created one from scratch instead.

I hope you enjoy! ♥

Cheers!

From The Mouth Of Madness

From The Mouth Of Madness

“Life… Dreams… Hope… Where do they come from? And where do they go…? Such meaningless things… I’ll destroy them all!” – Kefka Palazzo

This is from my recent Kefka Palazzo make-up selfy shoot.  I also shared this alter ego to my calm and collected normal persona during the last Selfy Sunday event.

Stepping into a look that is so remotely far from my real, true self was fun.

I can’t wait to create a full series of characters from my blend of video game loves and comic passions of my youth!

Stay tuned… the video is in the works for how this was done!

Enjoy! ♥

Please To Meet You, Hope You Guessed My Name

Please To Meet You, Hope You Guessed My Name

“Hee-hee… Nothing beats the sweet music of hundreds of voices screaming in unison! Uwee-hee-hee!” – Kefka Palazzo

If I could have a sinister alter ego that was hell bent on scheming, being destructive, and taking over the world, this is one to live up to since he literally took over the world.  He is infamous in the Final Fantasy universe for his sociopathic hatred of everything in existence.

Now, me?  I am pretty laid back, mellow, and working towards my own personal enlightenment, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a little maniacal, cackling mage dressed like a court jester inside my head saying “burn it all” at times….

Maybe? ^.~

The world may never know, but I created this because I wanted to truly share an alter ego that is completely different than my normal self for the #SSP theme alter ego and I think I did just that.
