This is a workflow on how to create a giant within after effects.
As a second shot we will take a look on how to shoot different plates for a splitscreen shot, where we make a double out of our main actor/ character.
Also you will learn how to make the tipod scene look like it was filmed handheld, by adding a simple wiggle expresion to the camera-movement.
The third shot is a combination of what we have learned and brings all of this together and one step further with the combination of several shots with a greenscreen.
You will learn how to create an easy compostion that is made out of different shots that we will combine into one shot using masks.
