Fast run like The Flash from Justice League in this Advanced Adobe Premiere Pro Tutorial. Create realistic lightning and a super speed effect!
Jordy is always saying to work faster and make deadlines. So that’s why I found a way to be faster than lightning, I became The Flash! You all probably already saw the new Super Hero movie, Justice League. We found the effect from the Flash starting to run very cool and decided to recreate it in Premiere Pro. And you are all now thinking, why Premiere Pro and not After Effects like a normal person? Well that’s the reason, we aren’t normal and asked ourselves if we could make the same effect in Premiere Pro with some simple effects. And that’s what we recreated in this premiere Pro tutorial.
These days you can’t turn on the TV without seeing a super hero film or serie. They are everywhere and now you can also be one in your own videos. But Super hero movies aren’t just special effects, there is more to the hero’s then you would expect. They need to appeal to the audience, so people can relate to them and compare themselves with them. More human super hero’s will be more likable then indestructible ones. This is because people want to relate to what they see, they want to be the super hero. But of course the hero still has to be someone to look up to. So when creating your own Super hero, just keep in mind that he needs to be appealing to the masses so he can be loved.
But of course the awesome special effects are what make super hero movies so great to watch! They use great color grading, practical effects and green screens for most of the Special effects that you see in the movies. These green screens are necessary when you want to do compositing, which means combining visual elements from different sources into a single image. This lets you create stunning landscapes or action scenes. The compositing is all done on computers these days, but 40 years back they all did it by hand with paintings and with scale model the animated by hand. So don’t let a small budget hold you back for creating an awesome Super Hero movie, you can achieve a lot with just being creative.
