I find a bunch of inspiration into the craft of working with VFX by researching the ways things were done traditionally without computer aids. Working on Voyager I attempted to do much of the work as I could without computers. It became difficult unfortunately as I had not had some of the training that these folks had or the time to invest in lengthy research that would provide little to show other than a small portion of a my film. However as I continue down the path of research here and after I leave I hope to continue to expand my knowledge and skill at this practice.
While screening a test version of my film in the UK, I received many praises by VFX masters who commented on the model crafting techniques and blending of the real with the fake to make a believable shot. Here is some additional videos that provided me inspiration.
