Twisted Pair Trailer: The Corrupt Version
This is a tribute project to one of my favorite filmmakers, the "David Lynch of bad movies:" Neil Breen. Neil Breen's new film, Twisted Pair, has an insane trailer which showcases some of the things his films are known for: bad acting, bad green screen, and bad special effects. As a fan, I took his trailer and attempted to make it even worse (meaning, even better) by manipulating the footage to rework every single shot. Please enjoy.
MAKE EVERY SHOT CRAZIER
Below are side-by-side comparisons of shots in the trailer. My goals was to touch every shot in the trailer and see if I could manipulate it to make it funnier or crazier or weirder.
Reversing Green Screen
A major aspect of the project was undoing Neil Breen's homespun green screen effects using a combination of After Effects layer masks and rotoscoping. I have since released these reverse-engineered effects for others to use in making Neil Breen memes and videos.
Spinach Scene: The Corrupt Version
Below are some examples of "breenscreened" scenes that I have created using my reverse-engineered Neil Breen footage.
