The video script was written by the client:

Hello.

I’ve been in your fridge since you went grocery shopping five days ago and it’s already starting to smell.

With your rotten mushy Tomatoes, rancid broccoli and moldy strawberries.

Did I mention I’ve been in here for five whole days.

There’s nothing worse than having to throw away your food too early
and the hundreds of dollars that go with it

So grab your money and those kiddos
Let’s try and fit in more time in our already busy schedule and head back to the grocery store.

What can be done about wasting your time money and food.
Well
let me show you with this clever little 100% natural filter fridge l–e.

It has the ability to keep your meat poultry and dairy nutrient-rich and your fruits and vegetables fresher and firmer

doubling the self life of all your refrigerated food

how does it work?
Fridge l—‘s unique natural mineral is designed by nature to create the perfect balance in your
fridge by capturing the moisture if the humidity is too high, and releases moisture if the air is too dry.

At the same time it absorbs those damaging ethylene gases and nasty odors drying up that ugly dirty mold mildew and bad
bacteria.

In addition to fridge l–e’s amazing abilities, you can rely on your fridge working more efficiently to ensure savings month after month.
Just place fridge life in your crisper on a shelf or simply peel the adhesive strip off the back and attach it anywhere

inside your fridge keeping your body healthy with fresher food and lasting longer which drastically cuts down on
your food waste.
What will you do with all your extra savings?

Invite Bob over for fresh fruit smoothie.

He makes them just the way I like them, with two hearty grapefruit and one big banana.

That’s right Bob, just the way I like it.

Go ahead. Be a Fridge L–e person.

All you have to do is keep doing is putting delicious food inside your fridge then sit back relax and fridge l–e will take care of the rest.

Fridge Movie Screen

Fridge Movie Screen test

Blackmagic Video footage exported out of After Effects into a stack of Photoshop files.

I went into Adobe Photoshop and did Script >Load into Stack.

Then I cut put the background. The fridge is an isolated layer, the movie screen  is three layers.

The girl is rotoscoped with the pen tool, the lasso tool and the box/rectangle tools.

I reassembled the tall stack of photoshop files.  The girl is a precomp.

Spider Verse and AquaMan

https://mattkprovideo.com/2018/12/17/spider-verse-and-aquaman/

I saw 2 movies 2 nights in a row.

A sneak peak of AQUAMAN last night and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” tonight.

Aquaman- eye candy for the ladies.  A superhero who doesn’t need a rubber muscle suit. The movie reminded me a bit of THOR  and the LOTR films….  epic conflicts between royals and the outsider upstart…  So much of Aqua Man felt fake.  Every scene felt like it was in a studio set or green screened, even scenes that would not seem to need to be fakes. Sitting on a boat, walking through an Italian town, walking on a beach.  And I never felt all the numerous underwater scenes looked like they were really underwater.

Visually,  it reminded me of  “Finding Nemo”  The Star Wars prequels ( in a bad way)  and, sad to say,  the dozens of other super hero movies of the past twenty years.  I would say of Aquaman what I would say of the many other superhero epics:  Bazillions of dollars in special effects that are no longer a rare thing. I can’t feel fear or concern for what the characters are going through if I don’t believe they’re really going through it.

People complained that the Star Wars prequels looked to cgi and artificial. It was a great relief, they said, that “The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One”  used so many natural locations and minimal CGI.

Aquaman is CGI from start to finish, its almost like Roger Rabbit, live action characters inserted into animated backgrounds.

Good set up of the rivalry/ conflict between Black Manta and Aquaman.   Black Manta was actually…. Black. Well why not?

Amber Heards awfully wigs! Yuck!
