A young filmmaker obtains a mysterious device that unleashes the full force of cinema on his front lawn.
Here's a new tutorial I've just finsihed for Red Giant, which shows how to use the presets in their flagship grading software Magic Bullet Looks.
For the update to version 2, Red Giant asked me to design new presets and to reconfigure the existing ones, so here's the video of what's new, what's changed, and how to use them, as well as some extra info if you're working in Lion (OSX 10.7)
In this episode, Simon Walker will go over the presets in Looks 2, giving you tips and techniques for getting the most out of them, while working faster. He’ll also look at some of the new features in Magic Bullet Looks 2 for getting better results.
I'll be one of the speakers at the Post Production Magic event in London on the evening of 7th Sept. It'll be a really fun and interesting evening, showing the sort of magic you can conjure up on the After Effects and Premiere Pro timelines!

Post Production Magic - Join Red Giant for an evening of inspiration
When a group of amazing animators get hold of a projection system, you’re either going to get an evening of inspiration or a cheeky light bulb joke. Post Production Magic is your event for awe-inspiring work by After Effects gurus Angie Taylor, Simon Cam of SuperGlue, Ernesto Rogata of BSkyB and colourist and trainer Simon Walker.
These artists show you how popular Red Giant tools like Magic Bullet Suite and Trapcode Particular and Trapcode Form open up big creativity on a small budget. Experience the best of design, animation, colour grading and visual effects created in After Effects and Premiere Pro, along with a networking and cocktail hour. Hosted by Red Giant and co-hosted by Adobe Systems, the event will be held at state-of-the-art Ravensbourne in London.
Here's the fantastic Toyota spot that Simon Cam of Superglue will be talking about, especially how After Effects, Trapcode Form and Particular were used to create the effects.
