Red Giant’s “Plot Device” product demo shows the little guy can do it big

by planetMitch4 Comments

This little demo movie from Red Giant is proving to be quite a hit around Hollywood and the HDSLR industry. You think I'm making this up about Hollywood, but look at this story on theHollywoodReporter:

Plot Device is the latest short film to get execs and talent scouters hot and bothered here in Hollywood. The short hit the town a couple of weeks ago and it didn’t take very long for the man behind it, Seth Worley of Nashville, to find himself in the spotlight.”

Ok, these guys do have some background in moviemaking and had some financial backing to promote their software, but with HDSLRs and some good editing and coloring tools, you too could make something as cool as “Plot Device”

  1. Am I the only one who thinks this short is just “meh?”
    Many of the “looks” effects seem just that…cheap add ons.
    The story, acting, and execution seem like plastic Hollywood garbage. I guess that’s why “they” are all excited about it.

    1. Well, Shane.. let’s see you make a low budget film that gets over 600K hits. Oh, and actually make it an ad for a product.
