yoga, hands, horse - October 1, 2013

Escape Plan, the film I worked on at Hydraulx, is releasing soon! I'm excited to see how it looks. This summer has been wonderfully creative for me, but its fall now, so its time to start working on this website again and keep improving my portfolio. I've uploaded three models that I've had in the works for a long time but never got around to finishing and rendering properly. The yoga pose was fun, I was aiming for a clay-like texture to it, as I did for the hands as well. I enjoy working on my sculptures in a flowing, messy, sketchy kind of way, which for me, contrasts nicely with the precision that VFX requires. So in a lot of ways, sculpting like this is theraputic. I think all the random facets of this method of sculpting pick up the light in a really interesting way, like lots of tiny reflections on a faceted gem. The horse is a touched up and improved version of the model I sculpt in class as an example for my students at VCAD. The horse is the fourth assignment I give them.

I should mention that I'm available for a fulltime or contract position at a VFX studio in Vancouver. I am also available for any freelance work that comes my way!

New Year! - Jan 31, 2012

Happy new year! A lot of exciting things have happened. The Terry Fox Memorial has been erected at bc place stadium and is looking fantastic. I've been teaching an evening class at VCAD for a few months now and I'm enjoying my work with the students there, and Anthem FX has completed another season of Sanctuary! hurray!

new new website! - July 28, 2011

New website! I'm much happier with the code now, using css made things simpler and cleaner. Its not finished but I was very excited to put it on the web. My portfolio looks a little lonely, but I'll be updating it as soon as I can with better renders and more of my recent work. Cheers!
