What was the goal of the project?
Rebel Plans began its life as a class project for two separate OCADU (Ontario College of Art and Design University) courses. The goal of the project was to utilize my editing and FX skills and produce something exciting and fun for people to watch.
How much time did you have? What tools / Workflow did you use?
Before I began the filming of the sequences with lasers I searched around the internet for FX plugins. I liked the look of FanFilm FX’s Blaster Bolt so I got it. The stop motion sequences took approximately 8 weeks. I used Adobe Premiere, After Effects and FCP X.
The Blaster Bolt Plug-in was a breeze to use especially after seeing the video tutorials. It was easy to play with and I immediately knew what I could do with it. The ability to use the perspective tool allowed me to animate both the Storm Trooper and Princess Leia figures head on.
I was able to complete the FX sequences in a few separate sessions. It took approximately 10-20 minutes for each scene using Blaster Bolt so ultimately I had the lasers finished very quickly. There are 17 sequences that use the Blaster Bolt plugin with over 106 shots fired in total, so the effect was put to good use.
Rebel Plans is my first short film release. I am currently working on some ideas for my second film.

VideoDenoise is a plugin for Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro that removes noise from your video.
- Automatically removes grainy noise from video
- Simple, easy controls
- Renders fast: Optimized for OpenCL and CUDA
Remove Grainy Noise
Whether your video was shot in low light conditions, on a GoPro®, or with a smartphone, video noise can wreck your video. You have probably seen it before – a distracting grainy mess that lurks in shadows and can make a shot look unprofessional. VideoDenoise by CrumplePop is a plugin that removes this noise, saving your shot.
Simple, Easy Controls
VideoDenoise is designed to be easy to understand and use. You can simply drag and drop the plugin onto your noisy clip. No need to hunt for noise in the frame or fiddle with complicated controls. While simple, VideoDenoise includes several powerful settings and tools, including a choice of several powerful denoising algorithms and a high-quality sharpening tool for restoring detail after your video has been denoised. These are all available as simple menus and sliders, so you can denoise your video and finish your project quickly.
Renders fast: Uses OpenCL and CUDA
If you have tried other denoising plugins, you might have noticed how slow they can be to render. This can be especially problematic with 4K video, where there is simply more frame area to denoise. VideoDenoise is designed from the ground up for speed – it is fully optimized for both OpenCL and CUDA. We think you will be pleasantly surprised by how fast VideoDenoise renders your video.
