Ghostly Video Attempt 1

Post by mcleod13 »

This isn't perfect I know, but it is my first ever attempt at making a ghostly video and I put it together in about 10 minutes.

Very good -- and love the creepy music!!

It might be helpful to other users if you were to share which method you used to create the ghosts.

But in the meantime, I have to move this post to the Members' Samples forum as it is more appropriate there.

Fantastic work!!! Did you use a green-screen to shoot that? It would be great if you could share how you went about creating this..

Thanks for sharing it!!

Thanks! I made it by making two videos. One with me just laying on the couch for a couple of minutes. I then made another one where I was laying on the couch and my son walked over to me in his costume. After I made the two videos, I put the one of me laying on the couch as the main video clip. I then used the video of my son and I as an overlay video. I increased the transparency and VOILA! It was a lot easier than I though it would be.

... And I assume you left the camera very much alone in all of this -- i.e. on a tripod in exactly the same place -- so that the overlays were exact...?

Whoops.. Yep.. I left it COMPLETELY alone! Was even scared to touch it when I was done!
