    Hello everyone. I've done a lot of searching online and really couldn't find any info on this. In all of the popular vampire movies/shows, the vampires have super speed when they run or attack someone.

    I was thinking to lower the shutter speed (to create a motion blur) and have them run and speed it up in post? Is there a better way to do this?

    Thanks.

    I found this which has a link to 2 youtube videos. The tutorial is in AE.

    Just to add if you are curious.

    In the twilight film running scenes they have the actors pretending to run suspended in the air on a wire in front of a green screen. They then superimpose this footage on top of some pre-recorded shots of a camera zooming through the woods on what I would assume is a track.

    Mind you, this is only for the Mid body shots and I am not sure what CGI/camera trickery they use for the full body shots including the camera moving around the subject!
