Portland, OR (October 12, 2011) – Red Giant today announced it has teamed up with acclaimed director and filmmaker, Seth Worley, to develop new training content and presets for the Red Giant community. As a result of this partnership, Seth will develop a series of free video tutorials and content specifically tailored to filmmakers looking to learn more about the visual effects workflow, and how to effectively integrate VFX into their projects. Seth is also developing a series of presets for Red Giant People - a collection of film looks and motion graphics templates - based on his personal creative style and that capture real-world perspectives from his current film projects.
Seth Worley achieved Internet fame for ‘Plot Device,’ the short film he directed and co-produced with Red Giant in support of the launch of Magic Bullet Suite 11. Plot Device was created to demonstrate first hand the high caliber work that can be created when using Magic Bullet Suite 11, even on a limited budget. Plot Device received over half a million views on Vimeo in its first two weeks, catapulting Seth’s visibility as a rising talent in the filmmaking community.
“Supporting the Red Giant filmmaking community is a huge priority for us; it’s about more than creating great product, it’s also about providing an environment for our customers to learn and share their experiences,” said Aharon Rabinowitz, director of communities for Red Giant. “I worked closely with Seth on Plot Device and got to see, first hand, his unique approach to problem solving for VFX on a tight budget - and I learned a ton in the process. Through the tutorials and presets he’s creating, our users will have the same fantastic opportunity. It’s truly a partnership for creating great content and growth in our community.”
“I have been a long-time fan of Red Giant and their applications have played such an important role in my creative process. Plot Device was the perfect vehicle for me to demonstrate the power and versatility of these incredible applications,” added director/filmmaker Seth Worley. “Today, this partnership now enables me to take that experience even deeper. My tutorials will dig more into the workflow and demonstrate for filmmakers the techniques and tips for effectively building visual effects into their work. And my presets are all built on assets I’m using everyday, straight out of the projects I’m working on now, so users can easily and instantly work with and build off of what I’ve created.”
Beginning today, Red Giant will provide a series of free video tutorials geared toward fillmmakers using VFX, and will include topics ranging from compositing, color correction, the use of Looks and general training for filmmakers. The first in a series of video tutorials created by Seth Worley is focused on The Flip – a breakdown of how an actor was sent flipping through the air after being shot by an alien in Plot Device - and is available today on Red Giant TV (http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/videos/redgianttv/item/267/
). The Flip tutorial can also be viewed here: http://vimeo.com/30342294
Seth Worley’s presets are also available beginning today and can be found in the Red Giant People section of the Company’s web site (http://people.redgiantsoftware.com/Default.aspx
