Recent Projects

Recent Projects

Late 2013 and the first 1/2 of 2014 have been filled with some fantastic projects that have pushed me in new directions. In the past few months I have worked on my 1st episodic series, “True Detective”. I have also contributed to some upcoming feature films, among them “A Most Violent Year” starring Jessica Chastain, and “Equals” starring Kristen Stewart.

Of course I have still been working on commercials, game trailers, and other broadcast related projects. I will be uploading some new work in the immediate future, and hope you will check back from time to time to see what is new.

 

thanks!

AU Masterclass-Retopology workflow in 3ds Max – the how and why

AU Masterclass-Retopology workflow in 3ds Max – the how and why

master-01I am happy to announce the release of my new Autodesk Masterclass Retopology-the how and why over on the Autodesk Area website. Please take a look, and if you find it useful leave a  comment on thearea website.

In this video I talk about the using the Graphite Modeling Tools to retopologize meshes created both in and outside of 3ds max. I cover situations I have encountered in a production environment including CAD data, triangulated sculpted meshes and creating a base mesh in 3ds as a guide to build a higher detail mesh on top of. For each instance I explain why we need to retopo a mesh at all.

WIP-2013 Flying Merkel

WIP-2013 Flying Merkel

marked_merk_wip-01Something I have had sitting on my drive for a couple of years now, still needs plenty of work and development, but I just dug it up. My re-envisioning of a “Flying Merkel” took sort of a retro-futristic view when making my own design. Hopefully it stays true to the original. Work in Progress.

I-Phone 5 spoof

When the I-phone 4 was released there were a few publicized “issues”. With all the hoopla I thought it would be fun to speculate on the adjustments that would be made to the next generation i-phone.

AutoMobilia

AutoMobilia

Since I was a boy I have liked anything to do with cars and motorcycles. I feel very fortunate that many times when I am on a job it is automobile related. Sometimes the vehicles wouldn’t be my 1st pick to have in my collection, so often I will make a personal version just to make it interesting. In this post I will be displaying some of the before and after shots.

Superbowl Commercial-2013

 

This year marks the 1st time I have worked on a spot that was featured during the Superbowl. The ad was for Beck’s Sapphire beer, and featured an animated fish singing “No Diggity”. Was a pleasure to work with a great team over at Psyop.

 

Stills and hi res clip coming soon.
