Death Star over San Francisco: Imperial Fleet Week

An oldie spotted on Kozik's Facebook Page. I could see Frank putting something like this together.

For those interested in how I made it:
I shot the background video on a 1/3-chip DV camera (TRV25). The Star Wars vehicles are either 2D stills found on the internet, or video I roto-scoped out of the movies, which I then motion-tracked and composited in After FX. I used the trapcode particular plug-in for some steam and smoke effects, and did basic sound design and assembly in Final Cut.

Thanks for watching!
