Fellow COW, student of filmmaking, and content creator Sean Alami breaks down how he filmed an epic beer commercial at home using a CGI background in this After Effects video tutorial.
Sean teaches how to change the background to one’s liking using his favorite beer, the alcohol-free Heineken 0.0, as an example.
Sean also discusses his camera and lenses, lighting, and adjusting the settings to get the macro-look and bokeh-effect that he prefers.

Lenses: Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 and the Sony 16-35mm f2.8
