Cowboys and Aliens Effect

This video is from the Youtube channel "Film Riot." I definitely recommend that everybody check them out because they have bunch of videos that are helpful to film makers. Everything from useful tips on how to shoot, special effects, and film recaps. The video that I have posted is particularly relevant to Motion Graphics because it is a tutorial on creating special effects in After Effects. In order to create the HUD for the wrist gun they simply made a few designs in Photoshop, transferred them over to After Effects and then moved the designs in z space. As you can see the final product looks very impressive with not much work involved. It also looks as if they turned down the opacity and gave it a blue glow to make it look as if it is a light display. If you are interested in doing this kind of an effect, they have made there designs available for free so you can grab them right offline.
