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.

Hak5 LCD Contest

Hak5 Entry post

While this content is a little old, I still wanted to post an update.

This is a little animation I put together for the internet show Hak5. It was actually created for a contest they set to create some visuals for the on-set LCD monitors. I was pleased to see that they used it in an episode!
