      Nick takes us through 3 different ways to render a character unidentifiable in an interview situation.

      WITNESS PROTECTION

      In the first instance, he uses an image mask in Final Cut Pro to colour correct the image and applies a pitch shift to change the voice.

      In the second instance he uses a blur filter and an 8-point garbage matte to blur out the characters voice. He then shows you how to use the ‘paste attributes’ setting in Final Cut Pro to apply an audio effect created on a previous clip to this new clip.

      Finally, he uses After Effects to motion track a number of black bars across the distinguishing features of his witness under protection.

      Must say, the easiest way to do this is to use 3 point lighting with only a background light and a back light.

      Or even more simple, place the subject in front of a window. Works great.
