Beautiful iClone Productions by Award-Winning Director
Q: How do you know iClone? What about iClone first interested you?
I found out about iClone as I visited various graphic and animation sites on the web. The ease of use and the speed of rendering is what intrigued me.
Q: What do you usually use iClone for (create which kind of video)?
I have just started incorporating iClone in small film projects. I have been doing films with kids at church since 1997, making films based on Bible stories. iClone has sped up the animation process quite a bit. I like to create backgrounds in iClone and key in the actors for various shots.
Q: Do you produce these projects by yourself or is it team work?
With our kid films (YouTube search jamfilmsvideos) we have a producer, a couple of writers and crew members, and I shoot, edit, and create the graphics and animation. Most editing is done in SONY Vegas Pro. I have used Lightwave 3D, VUE, Poser and After Effects on past productions.
Q: What do you think about the "iClone Virtual Newsroom Solution"?
I think it has great possibilities as the program grows. The speed of rendering is a huge plus and being able to add objects from other applications helps a great deal.
