Did some work recently for Alex Boothby and Collider Films on this Heritage Minute about Sr John A. Macdonald.
Modeled and rendered in Modo 7. Purple mesh is instanced to save on memory, gold mesh are soft body dynamic flag simulations, cached alembic files.
A promo video for Alpine Ski club. This was so fun to shoot, I can’t say enough good things about this club.
Working on the poster image for a medical documentary in development.
Been working on this spot for a Great Gulf Development with 1188. I did a test previz with a goldish building a few weeks ago, and client apparently so delighted with the goldness, they pronounced that from then on, all the marketing should show their building as a tower of gold. I am really obsessed with architecture right now, so this is right up my alley.
People are always asking me. “How do you get in and out of your Jupiter Island compound without anyone noticing?” Thanks Agusta Westland, I am really enjoying my AW609.
I recently became interested in downloading weather fax images using a handheld radio tuned to weather fax SSB radio. The weather fax is used by mariners who are far from shore wishing to read up to date weather maps to make navigation decisions.
Now that we’re used to clean digital imagery, I find it interesting to use a radio sound frequency to cary image information. The picture quality really depends on what time of day you are receiving. Shortwave or HF radio needs a freshly charged ionosphere to propagate low powered radio waves all over the world. I found the biggest improvement came with grounding the radio properly.
The fun part is that the information is coming in “bent.” The receiver has to be tuned to the right notes and skew adjusted to un-bend the image into a readable form.
I captures these faxes with HF Weather Fax for iPad. Colored them with Plastic Bullet.
I downloaded the trial version of Nuke 7 to check out it’s point cloud generation and modelling tools. pretty impressive. This scene was generated in a few minutes with the push of just a few buttons.
