Film-making is all about sticking to budget and being resourceful, and while there are many programs out there designed for the film industry, all the functions you’d want to make your film the way you imagined it are often split into separate costly programs and various plug-ins.
HitFilm 2 is a program which is designed for independent productions on a budget in mind. It encompasses video editing, visual effects and 3d compositing all in one place. The software gives casual and independent filmmakers all the tools they’d need to create Hollywood style effects, all from the comfort of your own house.
To show you what the program can do, FXhome created a promo video…made entirely with the HitFilm 2 software, showing you just what can be done with the new software.
Don’t be put off by the fact that the video was directed by Martin Swift and shot by Jake Scott. Even though the commercial filmmakers used their combined years of experience on the project, it still received the same indie run-and-gun tactics that low budget filmmakers are often forced to use. The entire thing was also shot within just two days from London rooftops to cornfields in the east of England. Literally all of the post production was done using HitFilm 2 including the UFO and helicopter sequences which were composited entirely using the new 3D model capabilities.
Take a look at the video and judge for yourself. Are you impressed? Let us know in the comments below…
