Visual Effect - Making Fire With Your Hands

User avatarDecember 14, 2011 by Surfaced Studio

I am getting more and more addicted to creating more elaborate visual effects

One thing I have always wanted to do since watching Freddie W's Fire Hands video is to make my own video of me creating fire with my hands.

Now I didn't just want to copy their idea and to be honest, I almost get the feeling the fire in Freddie's video is real rather than a VFX, and so I came up with my own little video idea.

What do you do when the lights go out but you have no matches to light your candle? Use your hands!

VFX - Making Fire With Your Hands

I am planning on putting up a small video tutorial for this fire effect as well

Or at least cover how to make proper fire/candle/gun lighting effects and composite them more onto your footage - I seem to find too many videos where the 'lighting' is just a mask stuck over the footage using additive lighting.

So keep your eyes peeled for some tutorials soon
