So, 10 months since my last post. Yeah, uh…sorry about that….
Hey! Look at this shiny object I’ve been working on:
I sat through half the Super Bowl yesterday waiting to see the shot I spent the last month of Saturday’s working on – and it wasn’t even in the commercial!
But here’s the extended trailer that includes the shot and several others that were left out of the shorter version that aired.
Michael Bay and Paramount are launching an unprecedented Oscar campaign for “Below the Line” artists.
I can’t remember another time when a director and studio actually made this kind of effort to promote the people who create the sound and visuals effects for their film.
I certainly prefer this:
I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been nominated for a VES award for my work in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
The official nomination is for Outstanding Created Environment in a Live Action Feature Motion Picture. My guess is they didn’t have a category called “Holy Crap did you see that?!” 🙂
It’s my daughter’s birthday this weekend and she decided she wanted a “Bath and Body Works” theme since she just LOVES that place. She’s got enough of their merchandise that she could start her own warehouse!
Here’s a picture of the cake I made for her party.
It was a big hit with all her friends and many of them ask if I would make their birthday cakes. I might have a new line of work if this visual effects stuff doesn’t pan out. 🙂
This is an awesome looking project a friend of mine is funding through Kickstarter. Fon is a really talented guy and I know many of the people involved with this project. Several are ILM alumni – so you KNOW that they can produce a fantastic looking film. Take a look and consider throwing them a couple of bucks.
