The Birds Meets Finding Nemo

"The Birds" Meets "Finding Nemo" from Nick Serr on Vimeo.

I recently watched Alfred Hitchcock's classic thriller "The Birds" and whereas I remember as a child being freaked out by it, as an adult, all I could think of now were those darn seagulls on Finding Nemo with their incessant "mine, mine, mine!" So I sat down and created a film trailer just to appease my imagination.

Special Effects Attempt

Here is an updated version of a film my cousin and I created a few years back while working as tour guides in Alaska. It took all of about an hour to direct and shoot-I mean, Toby could only run the mile so fast. :)
The whole project was done just to see if it was at all possible to create a film using my cheap-o Sony point and shoot camera. The special effect were added after the summer in Alaska was over in After Effects. Sound design was done in Soundbooth. I am pretty happy it turned out so well for my first try at motion tracking and rotoscoping.

Be sure to wait around for the special "easter egg" after the credits. ;)

U2 Concert-Salt Lake City

A video I created of the U2 concert here in Salt Lake City on May 24, 2011. We got front and center and I was able to capture some great shots of the band.
