Hey guys,

I am new to houdini and FX, I am preparing my first student FX reel now. I am working on Independence day like shot with alien beam blowing up the Statue of Liberty.

One of my tutors have expressed reservations that using statue of liberty for a pyro destruction reel may not be ok for political reasons, even though the aliens are the ones doing it. I want your take on this, all are welcome to give their input.

I have attached a flipbook, there is no beam there yet though.

I think I kind of agree with your tutor. The way it could work is you could start off very close up and when you pull back the scene is actually a diorama in a museum display case or something. A kids shoe box. Go for a laugh rather a than a cry.  Plus you practice the art of the reveal.

The only thing people in the industry care about is if you blow it up well or not.
