The "VFX Artists React" Series

Corridor Digital puts out a series of videos of them reacting to various VFX shots in film, television, and the internet. Though the videos are not tutorials or how-to videos, there is a ton to learn from them. Ambient Occlusion, aliasing, sub-surface scattering, clipping, the Uncanny Valley, the index of refraction, all terms that you can learn what they mean and how they affect your VFX.


From these videos, I've learned a lot about cinematography while working with VFX. I've also learned to notice subtle nuances of real life that can translate to a better VFX later on. Shadows and lighting, color correcting, all things that the guys talk about.
