Ricardo de Montreuil’s “The Raven” is a “sci-fi thriller set in an alternate and futuristic Los Angeles,” which is a lot like regular Los Angeles, but with robocops and Jean Grey’s brother from another mother. This was all shot on RED with Ultraprime lenses. I don’t know all of the software used, but AE and Maya were definitely involved, with Shake used to make his eyes look metallic. (I’ll go ahead and give myself a wedgie now so you don’t have to.) The budget was only $5000, most of which probably went towards permits to shoot in downtown LA for 2 days. Or maybe buying lens flares.
