Short VFX Breakdown

Beniamino Della Torre presents a breakdown of one of the shots in 'Alien Invasion 2'.

A few months ago I've posted my second trailer about the alien invasion of my town in Italy. Unfortunately I have no time to go on, but I'm working at a serie of breakdown short videos. Here is the first!


  1. Short breakdowns like this are perfect for showing that there are many steps and lots of work in even the shortest of clips.
    I am a complete beginner, but like many I look at some things and think 'Wow - I'm going to have a go at something like that'
    And then I end up doing a bit of sculpting that makes Suzanne look like a constipated bulldog :)

  2. It's saaad, because this makes me remind when I published the second version for my video, a totally new concept, and was rejected to be posted on BlenderNation just because "the old video was posted before", and that first one was horrible compared to the new one. A complete no sense because I always see videos like this reposted everytime showing the same tools over and over again, and showing the same artwork everytime. Sad.

  3. Is there a guide on how to use color correction, glow, lens distortion, etc and whatever it takes to make a model look real in a scene ?

    • I don't know... I've followed a lot of Andrew Price's tutorials on You can find good infos about nodes there. And then you have to make a lot of practice!
