VFX Zombie arm for X64 Horror Short film

Mark has been keeping his eye in with Mocha Pro and After Effects doing a short Visual Effects shot for Independant filmmaker Rhys Willaims from X64 for his new horror short film 'Scuttle'. Official bio: A young woman's sleep is interrupted by a sinister presence that lurks in her room. See more of Scuttle on IMDB or via Facebook.

Mark was contacted via filmmaker website Shooting People ( and for a small fee delivered a VFX Zombie bandage to the actors arm - in the original the bandage was only near his cuff and the arm came a lot further into the shot then expected. Using Mocha Pro to track the arm movement and a combination of Photoshop, AE and Davinci Resolve to regrade the shot, Mark was able to help them out.
