      Not that someone so young just did it by themselves. Nice work.

      @Alister Bulman as i mentioned somewhere, he can't travel to the US by himself at 14, so if he were to go to LA they'd have to bring his parents with him. logistically it might pose too many problems and be too costly. But you never know... maybe. Or they could do it over zoom.

    It's amazing that 9 years ago the lego movie set a new bar for CG realism, and now a teenager can get the same result in his bedroom after school *and have it wind up in a real feature film.* There's a lot of terrible stuff in the world, but the work the blender foundation has done to make this stuff freely accessible is just so wonderful and tickles my heart. Preston has a LONG career ahead of him.

    I can't even put into words how proud Mutanga's parents must be. To make such an incredible animation all by yourself after school at 14 years old, and then go on to work on one of the most anticipated movie sequels of all time-- he's basically real life Miles Morales

      it impressed the animation bosses: Lord and Miller screwing with the workflow up to the 11th hour with new demands and additions is what created the grind and crunch on the project… they wouldn’t make Monday decisions until Wednesday for work that needed to be finished for Tuesday

    Apparently for Point Break, the producers wouldn't allow their stars to actually skydive, but Swayze was an avid skydiver IRL. So he invited all the crew out to jump on a free day, and took the cameraman along with them. Provided with raw footage and still-living stars, the producer went ahead and used it in the movie.

      @P. Bananaz Omg you're so right, they need to do a video where he brings the Blender project for either his Lego trailer or (with permission from Sony) the project for his Lego scene from Across the Spiderverse and they go through how he did it and such.

    • RyoMassaki
      RyoMassaki Hace 8 días +8

      He did copy the trailer shot for shot, he did not create the cinematography nor the art direction. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to detract from his achievement, I just think that praising him for the 2 things he didn't do makes no sense.

    • Robert Libutti
      Robert Libutti Hace 8 días +2

      @RyoMassaki Its not that simple. Try to copy... The Mona Lisa. Get the scale, colors etc all right. This kid took the trailer, redid it in a new format/medium. Had to make choices on scale, color, lighting. So he didn't design the characters or the shots, there is a tremendous amount of work and creativity in what that 14 year old kid did on nights and weekends, even if it is a 'copy'.

    Great stuff as always. That point break clip motivated me to find some stuff online since it had been so long since I saw this movie. There is an earlier skydiving scene which is equally breathtaking. I think the major actors actually had to learn how to skydive. Also the Film movie helmet cam that i found while searching is crazy big for today's helmet cam standards. I am old enough to remember when this movie came out, and my memory is that they used one of those indoor skydiving fans outside with the sky in the background to get a few of the scenes. The actor being held up with air and nothing else.

    Jordan has really grown on me these past VFX React vids, last time he was on (Reaction to Flash/Uncanny Superman clip) he was talking about the struggles of the VFX artists work condition pipeline and turnaround times.

Really appreciate these real Let’s Sit Down and Talk moments, really brings awareness even through the React vids~ ❤

    8:24 I think a familiarity with the story of Lt. Col. William Rankin, USAF, might actually lend more realism to the scene of falling through the storm clouds. It’s wild the types of convection currents and wind shear, not to mention hail, plus rain so thick one could drown in the sky. Because I had known his story, that scene never bothered me - seemed perfectly legit at the time.

    I have a GREAT recommendation for you guys to check out! Automata (2014) with Antonio Banderas. It completely flew under my radar but its a really could film, originally from Bulgaria.
    Whats cool about it that it heavily features robots that look so real that I questioned lots of times if it was all puppeteering! Cool story too. You should definitely check it out!

    I would almost argue that Across the Spiderverse is one of those rare gems where the sequel is just as good if not better than the first one. I love how much they let the art drive the story in Across the Spiderverse

    I already knew Cruise did the 'hanging on the plane' stunt for real...Because I watched it from my back garden with binoculars lol. He did it many, many times.

    Your whole commentary on the Halo jump scene reminds me of what Penn Jillette often says about magic: "once part of the illusion falls, the whole thing falls". I'm sure that even though he hasn't worked in VFX that much he would be quite an insightful guest and probably have a few recommendation of more practical VFX in various movies.

    I have to say one thing, don't get me wrong
    I love Mutanga's work. It's cool and very inspiring this kind of thing honestly requires a lot of talent and hard work. If I think of it as a neutral viewer, it is simply amazing. But every time, someone like mutanga does something like this, the first thing that comes to my mind is just go to a dark forest and hang myself in shame(Basically Sam's reaction to the reveal) Just looking at this kind of thing gives me depression and my mind just keeps telling me "Go die in shame. What are you doing man. The world doesn't need you."

    You should definitely check out I'm A Virgo. Absolutely seamless integration of a 13 foot tall kid in Oakland. Great scaled props, forced perspective and perfect compositing. Some trippy stop motion stuff in there too

    What gets me the most from the “Point Break” skydiving scene is the fact that Keanu Reeves is holding the gun with his left hand and the stunt double is holding it with his right hand in some scenes…🤣

      He's 14 from another country, which means he can't cross the border by himself. His parents would need to come too. They'd have to pay for his whole family to come to LA and stay in a hotel, so it isn't likely. They can't afford that. They'd have to zoom it.

      @jeff mattson Doesnt sound like a problem really. It's not like they have to fly from Europe. Bring the parents too, interview the kid

      @PantsuMann 3 tickets (1 child 2 adult) from Toronto to LA ranges from 1900$ to 2300$ and the flight would take 8 to 12 hours(that's only if airline problems don't happen). Lodging in LA for a single night at a decent hotel ranges from 150$ to 300$ per person. They'd probably have to stay there for at minimum 3-5 days since there's a 3 hour time zone difference. So you're probably looking at something that could go as high as 7000$

    Hi guys ! A great episode as always.
    I would recommend that you take a look at the openning titles of the movie Hard Rain (1998 from Mickeal Salomon with Christian Slater and Morgan Freeman).
    I think there is a lot more going on that it looks like and a pretty smooth transition from a CG shot at the end (for a 1998 movie).
    Anyway, keep going, cheers from France !

    The thing that pulls me out of the dirt bike cliff jump, is that the bike doesn't move like it does on off road conditions. You can tell it's smooth, even though it's "riding" over mountain terrain. Even if they would've given a little wiggle on the bike, that would help sell it so much

    • VMYeahVN

      Yup, i think it's literally the only flaw in the shot. I think they could have built the surface of the ramp have little tiny bumps/nubs. Nothing big enough where Tom Cruise couldn't control the bike or anything, but just enough to give it that look like he's riding over a slightly bumpy surface and it would have completely sold the illusion when they put the CG terrain in.

  • EldritchNekoWarlockRhombusXIII

    you can tell Keanu is wearing a parachute under his shirt when he jump's but the acting is so convincing you feel that tension.

    In their defence, they needed the storm inordee to knock out Cavill and they couldn't have done it in a real storm with real lightning

      This, the storm exists for story purposes, and as soon as it fulfills it's purpose the movie moves past it. I understand it being a problem, but as soon as it's not the subject of the frame it's truly a spectacular sequence.

    Love how Mutanga’s story is one in a long line of stories like this. From a Filipino dude singing Journey on ESclips and actually becoming a member of the band to some one like Monty Oum whose ESclips animations landed him jobs at game developers and ultimately ending up at Rooster Teeth producing his own show (RWBY).

    Since you guys are talking about skydiving stunts, there's a rad aerial action scene about halfway through the Wesley Snipes movie Drop Zone where a skydiver's parachute doesn't open and another skydiver releases his chute to chase after him to save him. The aerial stunts in that scene are extremely impressive, and I think you guys would have a good time reacting to it.

    It'd be cool to see an episode about more folks who've had experiences like Mutanga's.
