I found out a little while back that Filmora has some pretty decent blue lightning/electricity SFX. And when listening to Caleb Hyles’ version of “Ultraluminary” the other day, I realized I could put something together for my Medieval-era mage character named Liam Gallagher. The style of music I typically picture for him is definitely more along the lines of Celtic rock/metal, but for some reason I just found this song fitting for how he loves to show off with his magic.
His magic is a very powerful type of blue plasma; it has the properties of neon, photons and electricity. It can most commonly replicate lightning, but can also create functioning semi-solid objects such as wings, weapons, shields etc. Liam is very proud of his power, and loves to put on dazzling light displays – both to impress an audience and to intimidate potential enemies. When he’s calmer or doesn’t have as much surplus energy to expel, his ‘performances’ appear more like the northern lights.
Caleb’s voice range in this song is also pretty similar to how I imagine Liam’s voice, except he’d have a strong Irish accent.
The background imagery comes from various videos (and a gif) of blue plasma globes. I would’ve shown more in the frame if people could learn how to hold their freakin camera STILL
