How it feels to watch a Presidential Debate

Yeah, not great, but crap footage equals crap effects :-)

Oh, and unfortunately, yes, that is me. No effects on my face...I really am that ugly.

That was really pretty good. And so much better than the effects in the movies I watched growing up (in the 60s).

Yup, I just saw a similar effect on TV and decided to see if I could reproduce it.

It would have been much better if my camera had an exposure lock setting and I actually took the time to frame-by-frame rotoscope my head instead of just using an oversized feathered mask.

Long story short, with a 500 dollar camera and four or five hours I could make this state of the art realistic.

Instead I used an RCA 'small wonder' camera and took about 20 minutes start to finish. turned out a lot better than I thought it I posted it.
