Visual Effects Walk-through

Middle School Walkthrough Nov 2011
I was recently asked to produce a walk-through video for a Fargo-based middle school, discussing the steps involved in creating a visual effects shot.

The video breaks down a simple 3D shot and gives an overview of the entire process – Concept design, modeling, texturing, motion capture/animation, tracking, cloth/particle simulation, lighting, rendering and compositing.

I hope you enjoy the video, please feel free to leave a comment.

Mac Lab – Rasmussen College, Bismarck ND

I’ve been meaning to add some photos of our Mac lab at the college for a while now. These were taken a few months ago, so the notice board looks quite different now and some additional equipment has been added – A great space to teach and learn in!
