This test clip experiments for the first time with:
Tracking shot in 2 speeds (1/8" and 1/16" on second half) Pretty good although a bit clunky on my part.
Flying rig removal on moth at end (have to watch my arm shadow & use another kind of support) SO EASY!!!!!
Far landscape seamlessly blended to pond set thanks to Christine's brilliant lighting idea.
Christine animated the moth in the first half, all of the water ripples, and all of the watch works turning.
I used three different layers of textures on the frames:
1. A light smear of Vasoline on the camera UV lens.
2. Jeremy Birn's Barrel Distortion and Chromatic Aberrations Action in PS.
3. White vignetting, addition of grain, and downsized to 990 pixels wide Action in PS.
