How much video effects are enough and where do they fit?
Most of us have seen Matrix, the bullet-time effect was amazing and that movie is filled with superb effects. At least according to me. However, if you create a movie, short or long, or an intro. How much effects are actually good and how much is enough?
We've seen great movies like The Godfather and Titanic. None of them have cool super effects. Nothing flashy, no shaking cameras or crazy lightning. A movie like Transformers for instance, are obviously filled with effects, but I'm not talking about effects as in a transformer. I talk about effects like lightning, slow-motion, shaking grounds or text and lightning.
This is obviously hard to answer too, as some movies or intros are superb with tons of effects. Imagine Titanic. Wouldn't be too good if Leonardo could kill people with a laser from his eyes. Right? - But it wouldn't be the same if Iron Man couldn't fly..
