    Hi all. This guys channel is pretty great and this piece in particular has inspired me. I am an editor but with good knowledge of effects. I often do roto and time warp stuff but this is something I am not quite understanding.

    If I were to try and emulate some of these I am thinking that I would be doing the actions in a separate shot, and rotoscoping the object then matching the action with the object if that makes sense.

    BUT what is happening here seems to have another level of complexity which I am not understanding. How is he popping that water balloon but then able to punch it? Two different balloons? Also the cookie photo one is blowing my mind.

    Anyhow, I am trying to up my game and I wonder if anyone here would have any insight into a likely process to pull these off? Then I can practice and hopefully be as amazing as this guys channel one day.

    Thanks in advance

    Probably a bunch of actual plates shot and composited with some CG elements added.

    I saw this when it came out. It’s really well done.

    My guess is that for the punch a water balloon was suspended on a thread and the dropping balloon was rotoscoped onto the shot, ending at the moment of impact.

    A ton of great compositing work.

    Why I got into this business 🙂
