In The Trenches Sermon Series Bump

Through the month of March, we are in a series called “In The Trenches”. It’s a sermon series about prayer, spiritual warfare, etc. Obviously, as you’ll see below, we went with the military theme; hence, “In the Trenches”. So without delay, here’s the final Bump that we ended up with, and then I’ll show you what we did to make this bump. Check it out:
[div]
[div] Here’s the process we went through to get the look we wanted.
Step one: filming boots running through the mudpit.
[div]
[div] Step two: Key the blue screen out
[div]
[div] Step three: Add the clouds
[div]
[div] Step four: Add some nice dirt textures
[div]
[div] Step five: Color treatment
[div]
[div] Step six: Add rain and dirt splashes
[div]
[div] And presto! Ten hours later plus hours of rendering! We have a beautiful bump for the sermon series. Just FYI, the color treatments and everything was based upon the sermon graphic, they weren’t random choices. This is best for the series in that all the printed pieces they see are matched to the videos that they see.
[div] We had a lot of fun making this video. We had to find a good army surplus store near by. In Fort Worth, we found a killer store called Omaha’s.

[div] We got some boots and a helmet for the last drop. We had a blast playing in the mud, as you’ll see below. You’ll also see that we recorded the audio of the footsteps splashing in the mud. It really helped to add that extra special sauce to the piece.
