To quote: Hi everyone! My name is Hussain Sheikh

I've been writing a series of 'making of' articles about Velocity 2X over on our blog
, and today PlayStation.Blog has kindly offered to host this particular post about the most awesome of visual effects: LENS FLARES!
Since the release of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek in 2009, people noticed just how much lens flares were synonymous with sci-fi. Carrying that baton forward, we decided to go full on J.J. Abrams crazy with on Velocity 2X
Have a look at these beautiful things in our early concept art, seen just to the right of this paragraph.
Actually we were so inspired by J.J. Abrams' style of lens flares that we started talking about them all the time.
After many months of this, the inevitable abbreviations began, and what started as "J.J.Abrams style lens flares" soon became "J.J. Abrams flares" then "JAbramzFlares"...
