2012 Recap part 1: VES Awards

To make up for the fact that I haven’t posted much since last February,  I thought I’d recap some of the highlights of the year.

One of the biggest things that happened early this year was that I won the VES award for the work I did on Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon.


Here I am along with my co-winners

It was a fantastic night.  ILM’s first animated feature Rango also one big that night (including the sequence where I supervised the lighting) My wife and I finally had a night out and I got to see a bunch of old friends (although I’m sure I missed quite a few in all the crowds!)  We partied until about 3-4 AM and then had to get up the next day and go back to work.  That Avengers movie wasn’t going to finish itself…..

 I was very honored and excited to win this award, it really felt like I finally made the big time.  I might never win an Oscar, but this certainly comes close in my book.
