Hey guys, in an issue of SF a couple of months ago, I wrote about how I was going to achieve an effect of a guy's head being blown off. I just managed to complete the shot this weekend and thought you might want to see how it looked.
I used photoshop, premiere, and after effects extensively to go back and forth creating elements and often times animating frame by frame - luckily it was only for 3/4 of a second!
