First time testing out fire VFX and practising for the big Pro Bending match ;).
How it's done: Abit of Mako cosplay, abit of Jackie Chan skills, abit of After Effects, alot of wizardry.

Awesome! It looks like he's really fire bending!
Now, if only they used your method in the movie...

Well, that was downright epic. Amazing. It looks very real! He seems to really connect with the fire, so I believe he's controlling it. :]

this is actually really cool. I'm generally not a fan of cosplay or of the bending effects people try to do to make it seem like they're bending, but this is actually really impressive. very well done :D

This is very, very awesome. Love the cosplay and the effects, and your skills are fantastic.

The only thing that kinda doesn't sit well with me is style of your maneuvering. Mako's style is very tight, with controlled impact...much like a boxer. Your movement is a bit flowy, you wanna go for efficiency. More BAM BAM BAM and less whoosh whoosh whoosh.

Overall, though, 9.5/10

Thanks for the feedback, will definitely improve since I'm relatively new to this. Airbending is probably closer style might be my next clip.

Air or water, both have those flowy movements to it. Either way, you did a really great job on it, and I look forward to more!

very...VERY cool, though I second ~itispersonal. Your movements need more urgency, speed and strength put into em. The blooper reel was perfect though... just so happened I was cooking some bacon at that moment lol
