I shot the plates in two separate shots ->throwing the axe and taking the hit. Made a 3D panorama in After Effects. In 3D Max I modelled the axe, matched the camera and animated the axe and camera rotation. Rendered with motion blur. In AE I matched the camera rotation, imported the camera data, composited, added the blood and camera shake.

I learned that taking measurements on set will help in matching the 3d camera. The ones I needed were the angel of camera rotation and the distance between camera and characters.

Some more test clips...
The loops were too short and I didn't have enough green screen, etc...

Crowd pt.2

This is pretty much the same as the previous post. This time I used pFlow to scatter the planes...

Crowd pt. 1

Made this in 3d max. I just scattered a few planes with the same video clip assigned as material. Apparently there is a bug in the clip, you can see it twitching.

"Tornado" Update

This is the new and improved version.
I rendered this with the default scanline renderer instead of Mental ray. The rendering time would have increased too much. I used camera motion blur for this and I quite like the result.
