Adobe Spotlights "Revelations"
I am very jazzed to announce Adobe has released their Spotlight Article on Panic Struck Productions this week. This is pretty cool for me as I am a huge Adobe fan. I practically grew up on the stuff, teaching myself with a book and just by doing.
The wonderful thing is that there are many many talented artists out there that have done just that. Taken an affordable solution and applied themselves to creating wonderful works. Even the younger artists are picking it up and doing incredible things. Very exciting.
When I was making "Revelations" Adobe was such an easy choice, as I know the software and it was affordable yet very powerful. The entire film of "Revelations" was edited on Adobe Premiere Pro right in my basement office on a PC I built from the ground up with a single P4 processor and 1GB of RAM. So nothing fancy.
We used just about everything Adobe makes practically. After Effects for the composite and 2D animation work, Encore for DVD authoring, Golive for the Web, Audition for some sound work, Photoshop for all promo work, posters, Digital matte painting, and other 2D. I even used LiveMotion for the flash intro I had on the website. Told You I was an Adobe fan, and who isn't!
Adobe is one of the largest leaders in graphics media and makes affordable, powerful tool that get the job done. To me it was an honor for them to spotlight our work on "Revelations"
Today you yourself can pick up off the shelf the Adobe Professional Video collection for like $1200 and you have a full production solution right there. Add in a simple PC and a digital Video Camera.. There ya go.. Now go make your movie!! It's no different then what we did the first time.
