Video Showcases the Majesty of the Rocky Mountains

The Rockies‘ is a beautiful video created by photographer and videographer Paul Sparrow, that showcases the majesty of the Rocky Mountains. Paul used ProShow Producer to make the video and added some special effects along the way.

You’ll notice scenes where clouds move behind the peaks of mountains and appear to come alive on the screen. Paul expertly crafted this special effect using ProShow Producer’s masking feature. The clouds were cut out of the original image and used as a new layer on a slide. Using a combination of masking, keyframing and chroma key adjustments, Paul was able to create the final effect.

“The phrase “Multi-Media” has come to mean different things to different people. As a photographer I use the multi-image medium to communicate my work. This includes image movements, animation and the dynamic co-ordination of the images to a soundtrack that takes the images beyond just individual photographs.

My intention has always been to use these media in unique and imaginative ways, creating avenues of communication that have a strong visual impact. My goal is to arouse in the audience an emotional response to the images beyond just what we see, to make the audience really “experience” them, and go beneath their surface.” – Paul Sparrow
