  1. Oh, you think that you can just waltz right back into our lives like that?

    ⁽ᵖˡᵉᵃˢᵉ ᵈᵒⁿ'ᵗ ˡᵉᵃᵛᵉ ᵃᵍᵃᶦⁿ⁾

  2. YES!!! I've been watching your videos the past couple weeks and they are so helpful! Would love regular content from you guys again. Your videos are to the point, educational and fun! The best on Youtube.

  3. Ayy, hello again! While you’re here I just wanna say I can’t tell you just how much of a help this channel is for my Creative Media classes! Thank you so much for posting what you can 😊❤️

  4. I grew up watching FreddieW, wanting to work in film. Now RocketJump post a video with a shot I worked on in. How has my life come full circle. (Btw the shot was the Fassbender twin shot in Alien Covenant)

  5. I so hope that this wasn't simply a larger project, that Joey felt like finishing, even though the channel is abandoned.
    I so so hope that this was simply the rebirth of videos to come.
    This channel might not get the views that it deserves, but it is one of the best behind-the-scenes channels in existence. Please don't be dead.

  6. Very interesting. Thank you. I missed Orphan Black though. It's a series, where Tatiana Maslany plays four of five different roles.. Very cleverly done.

  7. Excellent video guys. Even though I already knew this stuff about doubling, this was still a really engaging and interesting watch.

  8. Please please please, continue your videos! They are so inspiring and interesting! I was waiting for you to comeback for such a long time! I'm glad you didn't quit YouTube 🙂

  9. This video is awesome! Thanks for putting together the topic on creating doubles. It would be awesome if you could do a couple more videos on cloning. Over on my channel, I create comedy short films where I play all fifteen of the characters. I cross them and interact with them but after watching your video I realized I still have a lot more to learn to make my characters even better. Thank you again for this amazing video! 😍👏🙏

  10. Glad to see y'all are back at it! Also, the little call out to Phantom Of the Paradise towards the beginning there made my night.

  11. I'm wondering which election year will be the first year that has deep faked footage attempting to falsely incriminate a candidate.

  12. This video is only 25 minutes long and packs SO MUCH INFORMATION! I loved it!
    And to think that we can do all these cg doubles pretty easily now with our PCs and some software like Blender. Wow, we came a long way.

  13. Thank you for making this, Joey! By the time we got to BTTF2, I was thoroughly amazed by the wizardry they managed to pull off.

    I still use this channel as a reference tool for my work when I need a refresher. So glad you guys are still around 🙂

  14. surprised there was no mention of Orphan Black, that show was using all kinds of tricks to replicate Tatiana Maslany and it looks amazing

  15. Excellent video! Minor quibble: "keying" is a video term, originally referring to a switch between perfectly synchronized (genlocked) video sources partway across a scan line, often when a switcher detected a specific color such as blue or green — a "chroma key."

    In film the corresponding effect is called a "matte," originally from a physical card or matte held in front of the lens in a matte box. A matte on a separate strip of film could also be used in an optical printer, originally to superimpose opaque titles onto moving images. Later blue screens could produce non-fixed "traveling mattes," or alternatively a matte could be manually animated by projecting an image and tracing an outline, something called "rotoscoping." All these terms are still used though the details are different in digital filmmaking.

  16. Amazing video. It really shows that you guys at Rocket Jump are cinema lovers. I still often go back to your Cuts & Transitions breakdown just to watch the way you take one aspect of film and show how it evolved across movie history.
    Keep up the amazing work you guys.

  17. you see all the time the daily rushes in special effects, with low resolution, terrible quality sound, choppy lighting, often little actor chemistry it seems too. It is not as simple as "take footage. Make better. Add effects. Export. Movie". What are steps C through X that are required to turn daily rushes captured, into living breathing final export scenes? Is it just ADR, colour correction, and visual effects. Or are there more techniques that we never hear about? I've been taught heaps about pre production and production, and post from the perspective of cutting and visual effects, but almost none from a quality construction point of view.

  18. When the FAILED freddiew youtube channel finally uploads their 1 video per year. Took how many people this long to make a shitty video essay like any other multifaceted youtuber did by themselves on a weekend. You guys literally suck

  19. Eeeee … WHAT?
    You guys haven't posted anything in like what? 2 years?
    WELCOME BACK!

    There has been a serious drop in quality film / videography videos (ignoring gear review) for the past like 2 years.

    Film Riot, while still amazingly awesome, has moved up to work that is far beyond my reach and while I entirely enjoy their videos, they are not as useful to me as they used to be.

    FilmMaker IQ's videos have also dropped in interest and quality, John's past videos essays were amazing (history of music, sound, color … I re-watch them now again still) but recent videos haven;t held my interest.

    Indie Mogul is inconsistent.

    Cinecom[.]net's videos are interesting but not very educational.

    Booth Junkie (only laterally related to videography by the fact that videos use voice over) had also been on a bit of a dry spell as Mike moved to a new location.

    Corridor Digital is also mostly entertainment and less educational.

    Other channels mainly focus on gear review like Caleb from DSLR Vide Shooter, or Curtis Judd, or Potatoe Jet …

    I've also been watching video essays on specific movies which has been educational in terms of screen writing but not something very useful to me at this juncture as I mostly do small talking head videos for small businesses (Bed and Breakfasts, optometrists, Real Estate Agents …)

    Hopefully this is a resurrection of RJ Film School.

  20. This analysis on this subject is excellent, I'm speechless, it's perfection. Great work and thanks for the great knowledge!
