Red Giant have Created a Monster!
If you were a giant in the motion graphics software game, how would you advertise your products? Would you produce a nice show reel or would you contact some industry experts to ask them for a testimonial or two? Perhaps a cheesy photo of them pointing at the box with a banana shaped grin? All of that sounds fine, but what this particular giant does, Red Giant to be precise, is produce a short film to showcase what their product can do.
Red Giant are known for their excellent motion graphics suites. A particular favorite of ours here at GetFilming is the Magic Bullet Suite which plugs directly into adobe after effects (we used Magic Bullet suite on a film we made last year for a 48 hour film project). Magic Bullet Suite is a set of seven tools that bring intuitive, powerful color correction, and beyond, right to your editorial timeline. If you’ve never used a Red Giant Suite to enhance your film making, you should absolutely give them a go, you won’t regret it!
‘Go Bag’ or go Home
The most recent addition to their ever growing list of software, is the Red Giant Trapcode Suite, the industry-standard package for motion graphics in After Effects. Trapcode Suite is a set of 11 tools for 3D motion graphics and visual effects. You can create smoke, fire, water, shapes, surfaces, motion typography, 3D animations, audio visualisations and much, much more. To showcase their product, Red Giant make short films, short films that are of a very high standard. As they should be, they’re promoting their product with it! Take a look…
Not bad, eh? We’re thoroughly impressed with the Trapcode Suite, now we just need to hit up some investors to pay for us to make a film. Oh no, hang on, we don’t need that at all do we? We can use this suite in our home studios, Jurassic Park 18 here we come!
A Magician Never Reveals Their Secrets
Red Giant do reveal their secrets, they put together a great behind the scenes film to accompany the film. Again, it’s a great insight into the movie making process, even if this film was solely to promote a product, it’s always worth watching how other people make films.
