UFO Over Santa Clarita VFX Breakdown


A powering-the-scenes search at the viral movie “UFO In excess of Santa Clarita”. Whilst most assumed that the UFO’s will have to CGI though everything else was live motion footage, in actuality everything is computer created.

The sky is a digital matte painting wrapped on a semi-sphere. The car, its driver, the bushes, and even the flock of birds are all animated CG styles. The sunlight is a hand tracked digital flare with linked lens aberrations and smudges. Anything is bogus.

The hoax movie was directed by Aristomenis (Meni) Tsirbas of MeniThings Productions in partnership with the Gnomon Faculty of Visual Effects. Whilst Meni was liable for course, animation and lights, a crew of talented Gnomon Faculty learners were assigned thought structure, modeling and texturing for this all-CGI photoreal VFX experiment.

    Faking and presenting it as real, is fraud and lying. When this unethical(!) behavior is condoned and accepted as "normal", and in fact praised for its "skill and cleverness" we, and our entire civilization is screwed.
    I know history well enough to see the pattern, the rot of ethics and the perceptibly progressing universal decay.
